EASTCHESTER, N.Y. - Tuckahoe High School was recognized by the New York State Department of Education for its advancements in progress and achievement.
Tuckahoe is one of several high schools throughout the state that have been recognized as a “reward school” by John B. King Jr., the state’s commissioner of education.
Ira Schwartz, the assistant commissioner, wrote a letter to new superintendent Barbara Nuzzi praising the district.
“I congratulate you on having a school that has been designated as a Reward School. This school is among those in New York State that has made the most progress or has the highest performance with no significant gaps in student education,” he said.
In May, Tuckahoe was ranked as the 815th best high school in the country by Newsweek. The publication evaluated how effective schools have been in producing college-ready graduates, something Schwartz commented on in his letter.
“We applaud your efforts and look forward to assisting your district in having all of its students achieve college and career-ready standards.”
