Shine Great Neck South High School),在纽约位居21和第全国排115。它获得了73.8%的大学预备成绩, 数学得分能力在100%,英语得分能力在98%。大颈南高中的12:1学生与教师的比例比纽约市81%的学校要好 。 曼哈瑟(Manhasset) 曼哈瑟(Manhasset)与大颈一样,多为高级一家庭房宅居多,位于长岛铁路的北线(华盛顿港一线),只不过在大颈的下一站,交通也很便捷。北方大道附近高级商店,名牌店,,环境优雅。 状元学区曼哈瑟中学( Manhasset Secondary School),被排在纽约州第16和全国87。它获得了79.2%的大学预备评级。学校获得了数学98%和英语100%的能力评级。 曼哈瑟小丘(Manhasset Hills) 曼哈瑟小丘(Manhasset Hills)是Manhasset以南,也临近大颈,根据地区划分,大部分居民属于Herricks学区高中(Herricks High School),排名在纽约州第33和全国188。它获得了64.6%的大学预备评级。学校获得了数学99%和英语99%的能力评级。 罗斯林(Roslyn) 罗斯林(Roslyn)学区靠近曼哈瑟和老威斯特伯瑞。Roslyn高中(Roslyn High School)排名在纽约州第41和全国排名200。它获得了58.8%的大学预备评级。学校获得了数学97%和英语99%的能力评级。 老威斯特伯瑞(Old Westbury) 老威斯特伯瑞(Old Westbury)位于LIE快速公路的39出口,离曼哈顿仅20英哩,离法拉盛更近,地点适中,是一个美丽的花树田园小镇,素来是政商巨贾聚居之地,也是长岛「黄金海岸」的心脏地带。Old Westbury传统上是美国贵族和富裕家族聚居之地,被誉为美国百万富翁的首都,最近更被评为美国第二最富有的小镇。   Old Westbury有不少公私立学校,教育资源丰富,略分二个优异的学区─Roslyn和East Williston。这两个公立学区目前位「美国新闻与世界报导」纽约高中排名的第28和第40位。值得一提的是Wheatley …
