Deer Park Students Conquer the Challenge


The High School’s Academic Team competed in the Long Island Challenge on News 12. The Challenge is a televised quiz show for high schools featuring the best and brightest local students that tests their knowledge of history, arts and literature, science and math. The Deer Park Falcons defeated an intellectually tough East Islip team, advancing to the second round of the tournament (date/time to be determined).
