Five Nassau high schools were ranked nationally including Great Neck North and two Suffolk schools.

In Nassau, Great Neck South High School came in 31st and Jericho took 27th place. Both of these schools were down a bit from the previous year when Great Neck South was at 22nd place and Jericho was 14th. Manhasset High School also dropped from 30th to 69th.

Cold Spring Harbor High may have dropped from 16th place to 35th place but it is still seen in the top schools in the nation. Vandermeulen High School in Port Jefferson also seen a drop from 64 to 96th just barely making the top 100.
