Two Byram Hills Schools Named As Recognition Schools

Byram Hills High School and Coman Hill Elementary School are proud to be recognized as Recognition Schools by the New York State Education Department. The honor recognizes schools that are high achieving under New York’s Every Student Succeeds Act Plan (ESSA). The designees represent 13% of New York State public schools.


“These are exemplary public schools that demonstrate that all students can achieve at high levels with the right support and resources,” Interim State Education Commissioner, Dr. Betty A. Rosa said. “Recognition Schools help to ensure equity for all children across New York State. The Regents and I are grateful to all of the teachers and administrators who, in a concerted effort with their school communities, are guiding our students toward success.”


Byram Hills High School Principal, Christopher Walsh, credits the faculty and staff along with the support from the parents and the community for this achievement.  “Our students receive so much support from our entire community.  I am glad that our faculty and staff are getting the recognition they deserve.  It is also a testament to the community for placing such a high priority on education.”


"I am so proud of the faculty and staff at Coman Hill,” said MaryBeth Crupi, Coman Hill Principal.  “They provide the youngest learners of Byram Hills with strong foundational skills so our students can have continued academic success. Their dedication to our students is so greatly appreciated!"

Each Recognition School will receive a certificate of recognition from the Commissioner.
