In 2011, Mandarin Chinese was added as a fifth language to the foreign language curriculum, joining Latin, French, Spanish, and Italian. Mandarin could be taken only in conjunction with another of the aforementioned languages or after completion of a three-year language sequence. After the conclusion of the 2014–15 school year, Chinese was dropped from the list of course of offerings following budget reallocation.

In January 2008, the school produced six Intel Science Talent Search semifinalists, the second highest total on Long Island. Additionally, two finalists were selected from the school. Schreiber was only one of two schools that produced double finalist winners. Along with Great Neck North High School, Schreiber produced the second most finalists in the country, trailing only Stuyvesant High School of Manhattan. A student from Schreiber was selected to be one of the top ten winners of the Intel Science Talent Search 2008, winning a scholarship of $20,000. The student was the ninth-place winner for a zoology project based on Odonate populations.
Eight Intel Science Talent Search semifinalists were selected from Schreiber in 2006, tying for the second most semifinalists in the nation with Stuyvesant High School.
