Welcome to Nyack Public Schools. The world in which our students live is vastly different from the one in which we grew up. Fifty years ago, our schools were largely focused on the routine. Memorization and ‘following instructions’ were the order of the day. The most successful students were those that learned to follow directions exactly and learned to never ‘draw outside the lines’. This approach to student learning fit nicely into jobs that were routine manufacturing jobs in hierarchical organizations. In today’s highly competitive global world our students will need to demonstrate the ability to think critically, communicate effectively, analyze data and demonstrate the ability to be adaptable, innovative and creative - and yes, to take a risk now and then - and venture ‘outside of the lines’. I look forward to working with you as we integrate these skills throughout our curriculum as they are essential for our students to succeed in college, career and citizenship in the 21st Century.
