As a testament to the dedication of music education in the Port Jefferson School District, it has been ranked among the NAMM Foundation’s 2018 “Best Communities for Music Education” in America. The honor acknowledges schools and districts across the country for their commitment to and support for music education as part of the core curriculum. This is the 12th consecutive year the district has received the prestigious recognition.

“This honor recognizes the collaborative efforts and dedication to music education among our teachers, students, administrators and parents,” said Michael Caravello, director of music and fine arts. “We are honored by the recognition and the valuable support of our school community.”

The Port Jefferson School District boasts multiple vocal, band and orchestral performing groups for students and each group is provided with the opportunity to perform within the community. Additionally, through partnerships with Stony Brook University and other community groups, students have the opportunity to learn from renowned professional musicians.
