Far Rockaway High School

Far Rockaway, NY 11691

Our Mission

The Far Rockaway High School community with high expectations and a rigorous academic program dedicates itself to the education and preparation of all students, including students who are English Language Learners and students with special needs. In our Smaller Learning Communities, which are the Health Careers Institute, Law, Leadership and Social Justice Institute, Business and Computer Institute, and the Architectural Drawing Institute, we will develop young adults who are informed, responsible, creative and articulate decision makers who will become productive members of society. Our students will be taught to appreciate diversity and become professionally competitive citizens with critical thinking and problem solving skills. Our expectation is that our students will exceed the minimum requirements for a high school diploma by the end of their junior year. We believe that this success can be achieved through vision, academic rigor, dedicated effort, and a "can do" attitude.
