2 Long Island Schools Win National Honors for Academics


Two Long Island schools with Ivy League-trained principals and high rates of student poverty won national honors Tuesday for their “breakthrough” academic performances.

Anael Alston, 39, in his sixth year as Finley’s principal, is completing work on a doctorate in curriculum and teaching at Columbia University‘s Teachers College, after earning other degrees at Columbia, Hofstra and the College of New Rochelle. Alston also is a former Golden Gloves super-heavyweight boxing champion.
