The district’s elementary and middle schools have been recognized as Distinguished Schools by Project Lead the Way for the 2019-2020 school year. 

For the fourth consecutive year, all seven of Smithtown’s elementary schools have been designated as Distinguished Launch Schools based on its PLTW Launch program in the 2019-2020 school year. Smithtown’s elementary schools represent seven of only 11 in New York to be recognized. Across the United States, only 374 Launch schools have received this distinction for 2020-2021.

For the third consecutive year, all three of Smithtown’s middle schools have been designated as Distinguished Gateway Schools based on their Gateway program in the 2019-2020 school year. Smithtown’s middle schools represent three of four in New York to be recognized. Across the United States, only 158 Gateway schools have received this distinction for 2020-2021.  

“This recognition is a result of the district’s continued commitment to providing all students with the opportunity to develop critical thinking skills through a STEM-based approach in the areas of biomedical science, computer science and engineering," said Paul Strader, assistant superintendent for curriculum and assessment.

Jolene Cao, an eighth grader at Nesaquake Middle School, has been selected for two prestigious summer music programs. Jolene, who plays the harp outside of school and the violin in school, was accepted as a harpist in the School of Orchestral Studies in the highly competitive New York State Summer School of the Arts program funded by the New York State Education Department. She also got accepted into the highly selective New York University summer harp intensive program in the New York University Steinhardt School. Cao plays in the school’s orchestra and received a perfect score on her level 6 NYSSMA solo, using that audition to get into the prestigious program. She is pictured with, from left, director of fine arts Michael Mastrangelo, Nesaquake Middle School music teacher Jennifer McNeil and Nesaquake Middle School Principal Dan McCabe.
