About Our District

  • Collage of Rye Area NY public venues The City of Rye is located in southern Westchester County, New York, on the shore of Long Island Sound, 25 miles from New York City. Approximately 15,000 residents enjoy 5.5 miles of water vistas, nature and wildlife preserves, and open spaces, in addition to an active downtown, a municipal golf club, walking trails and history dating back to the 1600s.

    The Rye City School District includes three National Blue Ribbon elementary schools of Excellence serving grades K-5. Rye Middle School, also a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, serves students grades 6-8, and Rye High School, ranked among the top high schools in the country by U.S. News and World Report and Newsweek Magazine, provides a full range of curriculum opportunities at Regents, honors and Advanced Placement levels for ninth through twelfth graders. The Academy at Rye High School is a school of innovative learning, offering rigorous instruction that is interdisciplinary and founded in real-life applications through a largely project-based learning model.  

    The mission of the Rye City School District, in partnership with the community, is to ensure that every student is capable of becoming a life-long learner who can thrive in a global environment as a self-reliant and socially responsible citizen. To realize this mission, our schools will provide an engaging, challenging, personalized program that supports each individual’s talents and potential, in a fiscally responsible manner.

  • RCSD July Community Update: 7/23/21

    I hope you and your families are having a wonderful summer! Back to School: I’ve been hearing from quite a few of you asking about what school will look like in the fall. The simple answer is that we’re not entirely sure. We have not received any guidance from the State as of yet; we are hopeful that they will issue some soon. I can tell you that we are expecting and planning that our schools will be fully open with no remote programming. As soon as we receive any information, I will communicate that out to the community.

  • Revised Guidelines Affecting Summer School

    The District has received updated guidance from the Department of Health relevant to summer school. Effective immediately, the online daily health screening questionnaire will no longer be required prior to students or faculty/staff entering a school building. However, we are still requiring that everyone continue to monitor their health status prior to entering a school building and stay home when appropriate.

    Phew. We made it. While I have enjoyed sending these weekly missives to the community, I have most certainly not enjoyed the driving force behind them. I believe that you will not be hearing from me nearly as often next year. However, I do intend to continue with frequent District-wide communications.

  • RHS Interim Principal Announcement

    Over the past few months, the District has been engaged in a comprehensive search process to find Rye High School’s next Principal. As is the case for all administrative searches, a search committee was formed comprised of High School faculty, students and parents, search professionals, and District administrators. The search response was more limited than we had hoped and the size of the resulting candidate pool was quite small. After interviewing candidates, the committee recommended that the District pause the search process for a permanent High School Principal and resume in the winter/early spring.
