Middle/High School Earns Reward School Accolade

The New York State Education Department has announced that North Salem Middle/High School is one of the state’s 2015 Reward Schools.

Recognized for its commitment to academic excellence, the school was awarded this designation based on its students’ high academic performance.

“I am of course proud to have our teachers and students recognized by the New York State Education Department for continued high achievement,” said Principal Dr. Patricia P. Cyganovich.

Across the state, a total of 365 schools were recognized on the Reward Schools list based on high performances on relevant standardized mathematics and English assessments, as well as a high graduation rate.

It is that strong partnership that results in this recognition.”
