Background:
Situated on the north shore of Long Island in western Suffolk County, Northport-East Northport is a dynamic, active community boasting a pleasant blend of quiet suburban living with easy access to the nation’s largest city, New York. Originally called “Great Cow Harbor,” a reference to the cows pastured at the harbor’s mouth, the village adopted the official name of Northport in 1837 and still remains a lively, water-oriented village. An attractive waterside park adorns the harbor, with Main Street retaining much of the charm and quaintness of the 19th century. Six elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school comprise the Northport-East Northport School District.

Facts: 

  • The School District’s current enrollment is approximately 5,066 students. 
  • Our Budget for the 2019-2020 school year is $171,077,668.
