The Great Neck Public Schools is pleased to announce that three schools have been recognized by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) as Gold Star No Place for Hate schools. North High School, North Middle School, and South Middle School are recipients of this national designation for the 2020–21 school year.
The No Place for Hate program provides a model for combating bullying, racism, and prejudice in schools. To become a No Place for Hate school, schools need to form a committee to oversee and promote harmony and respect for differences, officially present the “Resolution for Respect,” and hold three or more activities during the year that celebrate diversity and promote respect. The Gold Star honor is reserved for schools that complete four or more school-wide activities during the school year.
This is the fifth-consecutive year that North Middle and South Middle have been recognized as Gold Star No Place for Hate Schools. This is the third year that North High has been recognized as a No Place for Hate School, and the first year with Gold Star status.
