Farmingdale’s Vision For Its Graduates

POG thumbnail199946

Farmingdale School District to Lead Community Visioning Process; Sets New Standard for Student Success

Every day, the Farmingdale Union Free School District strives to create a learning environment and curriculum that is both engaging and innovative in the ever-changing education landscape. The district’s latest efforts come in the form of Portrait of a Graduate, a nationally recognized and proven pathway to elevating school district offerings to best position its students for success inside and outside the classroom.

“The last 18 months have been a monumental challenge for us all. As COVID cases recede and our schools fully open up for our students, we now have a window of opportunity to refocus our attention by redefining our collective expectations for our graduates, ” said Paul Defendini, superintendent of schools. “This is quite possibly the most important work we may ever undertake here in Farmingdale Schools and we need all of our stakeholders to take an active role as we form our Portrait of a Graduate.”

While still in the development phase, the Farmingdale School District has commenced outreach efforts to key sectors of the community and stakeholders. In doing so, the district is able to obtain a diverse set of perspectives and feedback on how it can expand upon its academic and extracurricular offerings to better prepare students for life after graduation. Throughout the beginning of fall, community members will be prompted to provide feedback on several topics related to the academic processes, programs and outcomes within the district via the platform ThoughtExchange, which promotes an open exchange of thoughts on a shared platform. Once all data has been collected and synthesized, the district will provide the results of this effort with the community and adopt practices that will continue to lead Farmingdale students down a path of success.

“We must come together as a community united in our vision for the future success of our students,” said Dr. William Brennan, assistant superintendent for innovation and organizational development. “Implementing a mechanism by which parents, staff, and the Farmingdale community can provide feedback on how to better prepare our students for life after high school will serve as an invaluable component in this process. Together, we can create and adopt our own set of student outcomes to serve as a North Star for all Farmingdale graduates.”

Farmingdale High School Roars with Pride

Farmingdale High School has been on a roll all year, receiving commendations and awards in a variety of areas both locally and nationally. Now, Farmingdale High School can add one more award to the impressive list! On Tuesday, April 27, U.S. News & World Report published the highly anticipated 2021 Best High Schools rankings. Among the impressive list of high schools was the District’s very own Farmingdale High School!

“Farmingdale High School is honored to be named as part of the U.S. News & World Reports’ 2021 Best High Schools,” said Farmingdale High School Principal, Dr. Samuel Thompson. “I can’t think of a better way for the work of our students and staff to be recognized. May this achievement serve as a reminder of what can be accomplished as a united community with a shared goal of academic excellence.”

The Farmingdale School District prides itself on its ability to prepare students for life post-graduation through the employment of a curriculum that provides students with the tools and experience they need to succeed. The data, collected during the 2018-2019 academic year, assessed students' display of college preparedness, reading and math proficiency, reading and math performance, and performance on Advanced Placement exams, as well as the District’s high graduation rates, all of which are core metrics for evaluating a high school’s national ranking. Our Dalers’ performance in all of these areas, as well as their impressive scores on several statewide assessments, did not go unnoticed, affording the school a spot on this highly regarded list.

“Farmingdale School District’s students’ and educators’ ability to continue to perform at a high caliber is truly remarkable but in no way surprising,” said Superintendent Paul Defendini. “Recognition of our student’s academic capabilities in U.S. News & World Reports’ is a tremendous achievement, and we should strive to be included every year. Congratulations, Dalers!”

Schools that ranked in the top 40 percent nationally achieved status as U.S. News Best High Schools. Those recognized gained eligibility to display U.S. News-trademarked 2021 Best High Schools award “badges,” which are emblematic of the institution’s hard work. This achievement is shared by the students, staff, and teachers of Farmingdale High School, whose dedication to providing top-tier education, especially during these times, is truly commendable.
