This is an amazing school district! If you are planning to move into the area this school will be great for your kids, they have the IB program which will help your child get ready for college. the teachers at the middle and elementary School are filled with amazing academics and staff as well!
This school district is exactly what you want from a learning community; amazing teachers, wonderful families, committed learners and everyone cares about each other. It is the main reason I choose to stay in NY even though I come from sunny California. I cannot imagine taking my kids out of the school district where they have grown academically and emotionally.
