To culminate a successful year of athletic accomplishments, the high school was officially named a 2018 School of Distinction by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association on July 12. The high school joins nine other schools in NYSPHAA’s Section XI and only 30 across the state to be recognized with the honor.

The School of Distinction awards were established to help unite varsity coaches in challenging their teams to achieve a statewide honor. To earn the distinction, a school must have 100 percent of its varsity teams qualify for and receive the Scholar-Athlete team award during their respective sports seasons. All of Port Jefferson’s 22 varsity teams for the 2017-18 school year were awarded Scholar-Athlete recognition, in which the average GPA for 75 percent of the roster was greater than or equal to 90.

Congratulations to the student-athletes, coaches, teachers and administration for a continued focus on excellence in the classroom as well as the individual accomplishments and teamwork in their respective sports.
