Buffalo First, a Buffalo-based business journal, has listed the Lake George Central School District as number 10 in a ranking of 84 Capital Region School Districts and 55 out of 430 school districts throughout upstate New York.
In addition, the district was rated as the top school district in Warren and Washington Counties.
“I can’t tell you how proud I am of our ranking,” said District Superintendent Patrick Dee. “Along with our Jr.-Sr. High School being named an Award School by the state, this ranking once again demonstrates that the Lake George Central School District is doing amazing things for its students.”
Mr. Dee credits his faculty, staff, administrators and students who work diligently to consistently achieve high marks as well as the wonderful partnership that exists between home and school.
“Absent a strong home/school partnership, achievements such as these would be all the more difficult,” said Mr. Dee.
In ranking schools, the weekly publication took into consideration two things: graduation rates and four years of state test scores supplied by the New York State Department of Education.
For the last 21 years, Buffalo First has ranked its city schools. Last year, it began its evaluation of schools statewide.
