  • Welcome Back to School!

    Join us in partnership as we kick off a new school year and prepare all students to be "Future-Ready".  With a shared vision developed with YOU - our community -  we are focused on seven core competencies representing our Profile of a Nyack Graduate: Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, Compassion, Cultural Competence, Content Mastery.

    "In our schools, we are committed to the belief that all students possess great natural abilities. At the most fundamental level, the focus on education has to be on creating conditions in which students will want and be able to learn.  When children are encouraged to be curious and explore, the learning process opens up to new possibilities."    - James Montesano, Superintendent of Schools

    Together, we are building bridges for today's students to cross into tomorrow's world with equity, innovation and optimism.
