The total enrollment for the 2007-2008 school year was 3,434 students.[2] A high percentage of graduates goes on to higher education each year, to prestigious universities such as Princeton, Cornell, Brown, Columbia, Yale, Duke, and R.P.I.


In 1888, a notable wooden public school building was constructed on Greene Avenue, which was used by the school system until about 1958. Adelphi University also used the building for a period of time in the early 1960s.[3] In 1964, the building was renovated for school administration use.[4] "Old 88" burned down in a fire in December 1969, and a marker was placed in its memory in 2000.[4][5]

In 1998, the district was the first on Long Island to approve breathalyzer testing of students.[6][7]
