We have a lot of amazing schools here in the Capital Region, many of them academically are amazing. Also, a few excel in sports too.

When I was in high school, we had a pretty good rep in sports. Well, at least football. If I recall correctly two years in a row we went to Syracuse to compete for a state championship. I went to Lansingburgh. I have absolutely no clue how good or bad they are for athletes at the exact moment. I just don't follow high school sports super closely. I know that my alma mater did not make the top 35 list in the state according to NYUP.com.

Here are the schools who indeed did crack the list, also where they rank on it. Its good to know if you maybe are thinking about moving and your child is into sports.

  • #32 - Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake School District
  • #31 - Schodack School District
  • #4 - Queensbury School District
  • #3 - Shenendehowa School District

It seems like that if you want your kids to excel in sports, move to Clifton Park.
