ROCKVILLE CENTRE NY HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL RECEIVES AWARD

Rockville Centre NY South Side High School Principal has been named the states 2013 High School Principal of the Year by the School Administrators Association of New York.

Carol Burris, principal of South Side High School received this honor in part for her efforts to provide every student with a challenging curriculum.  Two years ago she mandated that all 11th graders complete the school's most rigorous English class - International Baccalaureate Language and Literature, Higher Level.  This is a college level course reserved at most schools for only high achieving students.

Ms. Burris opposed the idea of limiting students' potential by "tracking" them in one course or another.  She said the IB class offered the best curriculum and therefore should be required for all.

South Side High School provided academic support for all those who struggled with the class and reported success across all groups of students.
