For the first time in district history, all three of Valley Stream’s senior high schools have been acknowledged by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association as Schools of Excellence for promoting sportsmanship among their student bodies, coaches, spectators, and communities. Central, North and South high schools were all honored based on information about their athletic programs that demonstrates their commitment to promoting good sportsmanship.

NYSPHSAA carefully evaluated information from the athletic directors at each school. Joanna Katz of Central, Michael Frazer of North and John Kostkowicz of South provided supporting details that outlined their departments’ emphasis on sportsmanship and positive initiatives. 

“I am very proud of our building athletic directors our coaches, and our student athletes for their efforts in promoting sportsmanship, respect, civility and citizenship throughout our entire athletic program,” said the district’s Coordinator of Health, Physical Education and Athletics Scott Stueber. “We are very fortunate to have a community that values and supports interscholastic athletics and happy to provide an athletic program that provides a broad scope of diverse opportunities as part of the total educational experience.”
