High Schools Are Best in the Nation

All three high schools in the district have been recognized by Newsweek as being among the best high schools in the country.

On the magazine’s 2016 list of America’s top 500 high schools, John F. Kennedy High School was listed at No. 160, Wellington C. Mepham High School came in at No. 266 and Sanford H. Calhoun High School was ranked at No. 300. The rankings are based on a college readiness score determined by average AP/IB, ACT and SAT scores, along with graduation rate and college-bound percentage. Counselor-to-student ratio and student retention rate over four years of enrollment also factor into the ranking.

“I am extremely proud that all three of our high schools have been recognized as being among the best in the country,” said Bellmore-Merrick Superintendent of Schools Dr. John DeTommaso. “Of course, these lists don’t completely measure the greatness of our schools. Anyone who spends an extended period of time in any of our three high schools or our middle schools can more effectively measure the incredible things our staff does for students. Add a very supportive parent group with a Board of Education dedicated to providing what’s best for our kids, and you have a recipe for success.”

Newsweek used data from the National Center for Education Statistics for its 2016 rankings.

Calhoun’s Lin Published in Science Journal

Recent Calhoun High School graduate Louis Lin was published in The Journal of Experimental Secondary Science.

His report, “Loss of Mannose Phosphate Isomerase Induces p53 Mediated Apoptosis in a Zebrafish Model of Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation” was included in the June 2016 issue of The Journal of Experimental Secondary Science.

“He's worked so hard and truly deserves acknowledgement for his efforts,” said Jennifer Pefanis, advanced science research teacher.
