We are committed to enabling each and every child to reach his or her potential. Consistent with this mission, we provide enrichment activities for all elementary and middle school students, allowing all students to benefit by working with a specialist in gifted education in each school to promote critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Children begin the study of world languages in kindergarten at all Syosset elementary schools. They study Russian in kindergarten, Mandarin Chinese in first grade, and Spanish, French, and Italian in second, third and fourth grades. In fifth grade they learn Latin. In high school, in addition to Spanish, French, and Italian, students may also choose to study Russian, Japanese, Latin, and American Sign Language. Our students scores on statewide math and reading tests have been the highest in Nassau County. Our high school students choose from over 100 courses in academics, fine arts, music, business, technology, and world languages. Students have the opportunity to take 23 different Advanced Placement courses, and they may earn college credit for a number of courses offered in our Business, Social Studies, English, and Family and Consumer Science departments.

High school students who are selected for the program receive training before presenting programs to third graders in the elementary schools that deal with such issues as bullying, conflicts, and making friends. They also serve as role models and assist in facilitating group meetings for children identified as having difficulties dealing with peers and other social issues. In our elementary schools, a Peer Mediators program trains students to help their peers settle conflicts fairly and peacefully. Computer technology is an important instructional tool at all levels of learning. Every elementary classroom has its own computers, and each school has a library media center in which entire classes can have access to a computer at the same time. Students are taught how to use the Internet for research and how to use desktop publishing and presentation programs to produce their school projects.
