There are 2 school districts in the New Hyde Park (zip code 11040) neighborhood of Nassau County - the Herricks School District (#9) and the New Hyde Park-Garden City School District (#5). I think both are excellent, however, my suggestion would be to check them out at http://www.GreatSchools.net. That site will provide you with a wide range of information including # students in the class, test scores for the individual grades, regents scores for the different classes, advanced placement courses, demographic make-up of the schools, dollar amount spent per pupil, education levels of the teachers, etc.
If there is any home in particular that you are interested in, I would be happy to let you know which school district it is located in. If you would consider either one of the districts - or both - contact me for a list of homes that are available.
