South Orangetown Central School District

In the recently released 2023 Niche Best Schools rankings, Tappan Zee High School rated first in Rockland County for the second consecutive year and 57th among 1,255 public high schools statewide. TZHS also ranked 50th for Best Public School Teachers in New York State.

“Receiving an honor like this is a recognition of the effort that our faculty puts into creating opportunities for our students to learn and grow in and out of the classroom and our students’ willingness to take on those challenges. We certainly don’t do what we do so that we can receive awards, but it is always nice to be recognized,” noted TZHS Principal Rudy Arietta.
