NHS Named NYSPHSAA Scholar-Athlete School of Distinction
Recently, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) released its 2017-18 Scholar-Athlete School of Distinction winners, and Northport High School was one of ten high schools in Suffolk County!

In order for high schools to be granted this award by the NYSPHSAA, every varsity team from the school year must have earned a “Scholar-Athlete” title, which requires 75% of the team’s GPA average be 90.00 or greater.

“As a district, we pride ourselves in the achievements of our athletic programs,” said Mark Dantuono, the director of health, physical education, and athletics, “but even more so in taking that dedicated, competitive nature and applying it to the pursuit of academic excellence in the classroom.”
