About Our School

  • Milton School serves students from kindergarten through fifth grade. The school is located in the lovely Sound Shore community of Rye, New York approximately 25 miles north of New York City. The school and community are steeped in a rich historical and cultural tradition. Milton was the first mainland area of Rye to be settled. The Coes, Studwells, Disbrows, and Budds were the original settlers of the early Milton community of the 1660's and 1670's. The Timothy Knapp House, located at the corner of Milton Road and Rye Beach Avenue, was the site of the original Thomas Studwell dwelling.

    Milton School alumni are noted for their accomplishments and community service. Many families have had several generations of children attend our school. Three of our illustrious alumnae are Barbara Bush, former First Lady, Courtenay Becker-Dey, class of 1975 and Olympic Champion, and Dr. David M. Lee co-shared the Nobel prize in physics in 1996 for the discovery of super fluidity in helium III.

    Milton School is known for its rigorous academic program within a warm, nurturing, environment. Visitors to the school often comment on the friendly, caring ambience they experience as they meet our students, faculty, staff and parents. Our school philosophy centers on respect for oneself, peers, learning and the school environment.

    Milton School was awarded two Blue Ribbons for academic excellence based on the performance of our students. Our school/home partnership is critical to our success. The Milton School parent body is highly supportive of our endeavors. The Parent Teacher Organization provides a comprehensive Cultural Arts Program, a Teacher Assistance Program, and a host of educational field trips and morning and after school clubs. Parents, teachers, and administration also collaborate on our Excellence Team.  We are proud of our students' academic success, athletic prowess, musical and artistic talents, and good citizenship. We invite you to visit us!

  • RCSD Social Emotional Student Survey

    We sincerely hope this finds you well. It is more than obvious that the past nine months have been challenging for everyone. In light of this fact, the District’s Social Emotional Task Force (SEL Task Force), consisting of school psychologists, parents, teachers, students, and an administrator, will be collecting feedback from elementary, middle school, and high school students to gauge their overall well-being.

  • RCSD Community Update

    Yesterday, Governor Cuomo announced five newly-designated micro-cluster yellow zones in Westchester County. Thankfully, Rye was not one of them. This is good news, although I remain cautious as zone designations are updated weekly.

  • Elementary Academic Intervention Services Update

    I am writing to provide an update on elementary Academic Intervention Services (AIS) for this school year. We began the school year by administering early benchmark assessments to all students in reading, writing, word study, and math. Additionally, academic intervention teachers worked in classrooms alongside teachers to observe, assess, and support all of our students during both the morning and afternoon sessions.

  • Letter from RCSD Board of Education re Community School Closings

    Since September, we have seen a steady increase in COVID-19 positivity rates in Rye, the surrounding communities, New York State, and the country. We recognize and appreciate the Governor and Legislature for all of their efforts to help contain the spread of the virus over these many months.

  • RCSD Community Update

    Last night I decided to try and bring some normalcy to life by cooking dinner. In my house, cooking is my job, so lately it has been lots of take-out or cold cereal. While preparing the meal, my cell phone kept pinging with new email alerts. Thank you to the many members of our community who reached out and shared their contacts at medical groups and testing organizations. The outpouring of information and offers to help us meet this new challenge of COVID-19 testing is quite impressive and much appreciated.

  • Open Topics Forum at November 10 Board of Education Meeting

    This fall’s Open Topics Forum will take place at the November 10 Board of Education meeting. In “normal” years, Open Topics is a special opportunity for members of the community to meet in person with Board of Education members in an informal setting to ask questions about points of interest or concern.

  • RCSD Community Update

    As if this week hasn’t already had its share of confusion, the District has been receiving a fair amount of new - and sometimes bewildering - rules and regulations. I apologize in advance for the length of this communication; there is much to convey and, hopefully, to clarify.
