Thank you for visiting our website. You will see that, in spite of being a small district, we have many offerings that make our district unique and provide our students with the opportunities to be prepared when they graduate. The Agenda for the next Board Meeting is available on the calendar. Just click on the date of the next meeting. Click here for a summary of the latest Board of Education Meeting.
Our library media center is unique in that it is the only shared school/public library in New York State. It is a modern facility, which provides our community with the benefit of jointly utilizing the collections of a school library as well as a public library.
The technology program in our school is unsurpassed in our area. Every classroom has a minimum of four desktop computers. We also have two mobile laptop labs and three computer labs as well as a long- distance learning facility that allows our students virtually access to any place in the world. They have enjoyed such experiences as talking to the astronauts at NASA and students in England. They have, also, taken classes from such places as Stanford University in California.
At the upper levels, we offer honors classes in all core areas plus many AP and Gemini classes, allowing our students to earn college credit while still in High School.
Almost all of our students are involved in some type of extra-curricular activity. Over 60% of our High School students participate in at least one sport. We, also, have musicals and an active student council to mention a few others.
We have an energetic teaching staff and a dynamic and innovative administrative staff who are dedicated to educating our students. We have a number of volunteers who, in a variety of ways, offer their support to both students and staff. Our school combines the setting of a small school with many offerings found in a larger district. Our goal is to create a partnership with the school, students and community to challenge all our learners to higher standards.
