Lake George Elementary School is a NYS "Recognition School"



We are proud to announce that Lake George Elementary School has earned the distinction of being a 2019-2020 New York State "Recognition School." "Recognition Schools are the highest performing and rapidly improving schools across the state" Interim Commissioner Shannon Tahoe said. "Recognition Schools across the state demonstrate the relentless commitment of teachers, administrators, staff and parents, without whom this growth would not have been possible." Only thirteen percent of the schools in New York State achieved this status.


"These are exemplary public schools that demonstrate that all students can achieve at high levels with the right support and resources," Board of Regents Chancellor Betty A. Rosa said, "Recognition Schools help to ensure equity for all children across New York State. The Regents and I are grateful to all of the teachers and administrators who, in concerted effort with their school communities, are guiding students toward success."


Lake George Elementary School was also recently recognized as a Leader In Me Lighthouse school in April 2019 for their extensive leadership program, and a Leader In Me Academic Honor Roll School in November 2019 for their high academic achievement.
