This award is a tribute to the academic programs and teachers for the work that they do to prepare student athletes.

Congratulations Walt Whitman High School on being named a NYSPHSAA Scholar-Athlete Team School of Excellence for the 2017-2018 school year. Twenty-seven of the school’s 30 sports teams helped qualify Whitman for this distinguished award, as each team maintained an average of 90 or better throughout the entire school year. “Walt Whitman is within the top 15% in the state academically,” said Dr. James Wright, District Supervisor of Physical Education, Health, Athletics and Recreation. “We credit our wonderful teachers as they prepare student-athletes within the classroom and beyond, allowing them to play even more competently on the field.”
