High School East has been named a School of Distinction by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association. High School West has been honored as a School of Excellence. This year, 56 schools earned the School of Distinction Award and 140 schools earned the School of Excellence Award.

Schools can apply for School of Distinction status by having 100% of their varsity teams qualify and receive the Scholar-Athlete team award during their respective sports seasons. To earn the School of Excellence Award, 75% of a school’s varsity teams must qualify and receive the Scholar-Athlete team award. This year’s winners were based on fall 2019 and winter 2020 Scholar-Athlete submissions.

The purpose of the School of Distinction and School of Excellence awards are to unite varsity coaches in challenging their teams to achieve a statewide honor.
