The Massapequa Union Free School District #23

Mission Statement

  • Our mission is to educate all students to their highest level of academic potential and to teach them the skills and knowledge to become capable, creative and responsible members of our society. Responsibility for learning must be shared by all - children, parents, teachers and community.

About our district

  • Massapequa is located on the famed south shore of Long Island, NY, approximately 25 miles east of New York City. Massapequa is one of the largest K-12 school systems in Nassau County. Despite its size, Massapequa remains a close-knit community. Pride runs deep, as generations of residents look to stay in the community where they were raised. A significant number of residents are employed in the public safety, health care, education, finance and public administration fields. Our residents are passionate about their schools, which shows in the support they give each year to our academic, athletic and arts programs. 

    The district serves a population of approximately 6,500 students and is composed of six elementary schools, one middle school and one high school, which opened in 1955 and has two campuses. Massapequa High School Main Campus has an enrollment of close to 1,500 for grades 10-12, and the 9th grade Ames Campus has an enrollment of close to 450 students.

  • Insight is the Massapequa School District's quarterly newsletter, published to keep the community informed of the exciting things happening in our schools.
