Division 1 Boro Champs:
The JV and Varsity Boys were first in the Boros this season!
The HSAS Student Government organized a fall festival on a recent half-day. Pumpkin painting / carving and board games were only some of the many fun activities that day!
Special visitor to HSAS
Not immediately apparent in the photo above, but on closer examination, there is a feathered visitor sitting atop the telephone pole. A white tailed hawk appeared to be watching over the students as they arrived to school the morning of October 2, but he was actually not too interested in HSAS arrivals. Much to the amusement (and horror) of onlookers, he was more interested in catching a squirrel in the nearby pine tree. Thankfully, students were safely in class by the time the hawk successfully bagged his furry prey.
Our school is ranked #1 in the state of New York!
In US News’s latest list of the best high schools in the nation, HSAS was ranked #1 in New York City and New York State. We were ranked the thirty-second best high school in the nation. Congratulations to all members of the school community!
Pestopalooza: Students from the HSAS Environmental Club have produced their own pesto for sale this October. The basil and garlic came from our own garden.
