The NAMM Foundation recognizes

A ‘2023 Best Community For Music Education Designation’ In The United States

The NAMM Foundation each year selects school districts to be recognized as being among the Best Communities for Music Education (BCME). Now in its 22nd year, the awards program recognizes outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students and community leaders who have made music education part of the curriculum. Designations are made to districts and schools that demonstrate an exceptionally high commitment and access to music education. These districts and schools set the bar in offering students access to comprehensive music education.

Commack Public Schools has been designated a “Best Community!” This is Commack’s 14th Best Communities for Music Education recognition as the District received this honor in 2002, 2008, and annually since 2011.
