Royal Pride continues as Earl. L Vandermeulen High School was named a School of Excellence by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association. One of only 14 high schools in Suffolk County and 135 statewide to achieve the honor, the accolade honors varsity coaches in their commitment to challenging student-athletes to achieve a statewide recognition.

“This honor is a testament to the continued efforts of our student-athletes and varsity coaches, who in addition to the teamwork that is instilled on the playing fields and courts, place an important value on academics,” Adam Sherrard, the district’s director of health, physical education and athletics said.

To earn the School of Excellence Award, 75 percent of the high school’s varsity teams qualified and received the NYSPHSAA Scholar-Athlete team award.
