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.

  • Race Inclusivity and Community Task Force Update: 5/12/21

    At the May 4th Board of Education meeting, we heard clear consensus from all who spoke about both the need for the Race, Inclusivity and Community Task Force and the desire to have a stronger sense of inclusion in our schools for all students. Still, there is some lingering misinformation being perpetuated about the work and the Task Force. We are writing to correct these inaccuracies and provide the facts.

  • RCSD Community Update: 5/7/21

    This Friday, I have some exciting news to share with you. The RCSD has been chosen by White Plains Hospital to serve as a pop-up clinic site to administer the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to our students on Friday, May 21, during the school day, with the second dose to follow on Friday, June 11. The Pfizer vaccine is currently approved for children ages 16+, but there is the distinct possibility it will be approved for use in ages 12-15 by May 21. White Plains Hospital has asked us to gauge parent interest in students receiving the vaccine. If you are interested in having your RHS, RMS, and/or 5th-grade student (age 12 or above) vaccinated on May 21/June 11, please complete the Google form linked below. Please complete a separate form for each of your children.

    To use a Derby metaphor, we are in the final stretch of the school year. Less than two months are remaining, but those will be busy days indeed. I am hoping they are happy and healthy days for you and your families.

  • RCSD Community Update: 4/23/21

    On April 12, the NYSED Board of Regents (the governing board of NYS schools), launched an initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion across all NYS schools. They created a draft framework of guidance for all schools to work towards called The NYS Board of Regents Framework on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in New York. The guidance recognizes that there is no single answer that will solve society’s pervasive problems. It further explains that NYSED and NYS Schools will be part of a holistic and inclusive solution to racism and bigotry. With an expectation and charge that local school districts will begin the important work of creating sustainable change that will create learning communities that are more diverse, equitable and inclusive, this is the strongest challenge yet that the Board of Regents has given to schools.
