Optional Attendance Zone
The Great Neck Public Schools has established an optional attendance zone for our secondary schools which allows qualified families in the south attendance zone of our district to have the option to send their secondary school child to North Middle and North High Schools. To maintain the balance of student enrollment moving forward, the Board of Education adopted a revision to the optional attendance zone that allows only students entering sixth-grade and residing within the optional attendance zone to attend North Middle School instead of South Middle School. Any other request for a school assignment that differs from a student’s designated attendance zone will only be considered through the variance process. This variance approach has addressed such requests for many years. Please see the information posted in the right-hand column for more information.
