Niche.com has again selected Walt Whitman in its 2019 “Best Public High Schools in America” list naming us as one of the top 100 in New York State with an 80th overall ranking and the popular high school came in at #6 in Suffolk County.

“To be able to receive such praise is an amazing accomplishment and I am happy to see that the efforts of our school community are recognized,” said Whitman Principal Mr. John Murphy. “Parents, students, and staff work diligently to provide opportunities for all who attend and it is our goal to create global citizens ready to enter the world who are compassionate with a sense of purpose.”  

Walt Whitman is known as "the school that never sleeps" due to the countless hours that their staff puts in regularly to ensure that all students have the best high school experience possible.  We are also proud of the District’s overall ranking at #61 in the State out of 950 districts and #9 in Suffolk County out of 69 districts.”
