The Daily Beast has ranked Harborfields High School #156 in the nation on its list of Top High Schools for 2014. Seven hundred high schools throughout the nation were compared based on six different indicators from surveys submitted to the publication, with a specific focus on graduation and college acceptance rates. Harborfields ranks 21st in New York State, 10th on Long Island and 2nd in Suffolk County.

In past years, the Daily Beast has teamed up with Newsweek to compile the national rankings; however, this is the first year that The Daily Beast has provided its own list. The rankings break down its numbers on the strength of six criteria:

• Graduation rate

• College acceptance rate

• AP/IB/AICE tests taken per student

• Average SAT/ACT test scores

• Average AP/IB/AICE test scores

• Percentage of students enrolled in at least ONE AP/IB/AICE course

“We are extremely proud that Harborfields High School was included on the ‘Best High School’ list,” said Diana Todaro, Superintendent of Schools. “I commend our entire school community for its continued focus on excellence and its commitment to improving the quality and diversity of programs offered to students.”
