The Long Beach City School District is a public school district that provides education to The City of Long Beach, Lido Beach, Point Lookout and East Atlantic Beach on the South Shore of Long Island, New York. It currently houses a total of 3,583 students in all grades.[4]

The school board is composed of five elected members. Currently the board members are: Stewart Mininsky (President), Darlene Tangney(Vice President), Perry Bodnar, Maureen Vrona and Dr. Dennis Ryan.

Although it identifies publicly as Long Beach Public Schools, it is actually not a 'public school district'—a legal term in New York—but an 'extended city school district', meaning it has a great deal more autonomy and flexibility than a regular school district.

The current Superintendent is David Weiss.
