Though the 2019-20 school year was unlike any other, there are many victories we celebrated as a School.

SBS sailors Nick Gargiulo '23 and Steven Hardee '22 recently placed impressively in the second stage of the Oakcliff Triple Crown Series. Together they came in first place in the 49er FX class, winning seven out of fifteen races—making them the top finishers of the second weekend of the competition. The Oakcliff Triple Crown series is a sailing competition that was designed for aspiring Olympic athletes to help them continue to pursue their dreams. Nicholas and Steven, who have both been sailing for approximately eight years, both have Olympic aspirations and hope to compete in the 2028 LA Olympics for the 49er full rig.
“Nick and Steven are incredibly dedicated sailors and we look forward to their continued success,” said Coach John Everitt.
SBS was recently featured in a Newsday article regarding private schools returning to campuses in the fall. The piece highlights the lengths to which private schools, and The Stony Brook School in particular, went to ensure the continued virtual education of their students—and the lengths to which they plan to go when reopening.
Head of school Joshua Crane was quoted in the article, saying "kids need to go back to school, and we can do it in a safe and healthy fashion—so please give us the chance to do that."
