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 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.

  • RCSD Community Update: 4/16/21

    Things are feeling a lot more “business as usual” over at the High School these days. This week, RHS students and faculty participated in the traditional spirit week activities in preparation for tomorrow’s 3:00 p.m. Rye Harrison football game. Students, faculty, and staff dressed in red, white, and blue, beach attire, and even robes and pajamas. An after-school pep rally is planned for high school students (only) today to pump everyone up for The Game. Unfortunately, New York State Department of Health regulations prevent fans from gathering in Nugent Stadium, but players are allowed to invite two spectators each so there won’t be a shortage of socially distanced cheers on Sunday. The game will be broadcast live on the LocalLive free streaming service for the wider Rye and Harrison communities to watch: https://events.locallive.tv/school/rye-hs
