About Our School

  • Midland School is an outstanding elementary school located in Rye, New York.  The Midland School Community prides itself on excellence in leadership, student engagement, a rigorous curriculum, high quality teaching, parent involvement, and deep community support.  Midland School's success continues in an environment that is challenging and yet nurturing for its students.

    Our teachers have high expectations, yet are caring and willing to provide appropriate programs for children at all levels of learning.  Our instruction is characterized by a child-centered philosophy that recognizes that each individual is unique.  Our teachers have a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences and personalities and bring multiple teaching methods, techniques and styles to each classroom, differentiating for the needs of the individual child.  However, each one shares the goal of success for all our students.

    Our students are caring and involved members of the community in which they live.  While the children of Midland strive for academic success, many are involved in other endeavors as well.  From drama to sports to volunteer work, the children in our community bring a sense of pride to the teachers and parents that love and care for them.  Through our character education program, students focus on traits such as empathy, responsibility and citizenship and it has helped to create a wonderfully caring and sensitive student body.  We are also fortunate that the diversity of our students provides a rich cultural awareness in each classroom.  Additionally, our students are some of the top performing in the state.

    Involving the family in the student’s education is one of Midland’s priorities.  Increasingly environmentally aware, we communicate electronically with parents when possible.  Parents are encouraged to communicate with teachers via e-mail.  Teachers are always happy to schedule an appointment to speak with you about your child by phone or in person.  Through special programs and the efforts of our Parent Teacher Organization, the Midland community is informed of and included in their child’s education.  Our faculty and parents work together well beyond the conventional school day providing the students with programs that enhance learning and showcase our accomplishments. 

    Midland School is successful because we all work harmoniously to promote an ideal academic and social environment for the children of our school.

  • RCSD Community Update: 1/22/21

    I am continually impressed by our students and their incredible sense of community as well as their desire to help others. A group of industrious Rye High School students has been working closely with our High School administrative team to develop a plan to support seniors in our community with scheduling appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine. If you needed some inspiration or something to brighten your day - this is it. Kudos, kids!

  • RCSD Community Update: 1/15/21

    The District has seen a marked decrease in the number of new COVID-19 cases and in the number of students, faculty, and staff required to quarantine. There have been two positive cases at Rye High School and one at Midland School this week. Only the Midland case required any additional individual people to be quarantined, and, due to the new quarantine guidelines, the number of people required to quarantine as a result was quite small. Our hard work and months of lobbying the Department of Health seem to have paid off, enabling us to quarantine far fewer individuals. For more information about the Westchester County Department of Health’s new quarantine guidelines, see my communication from this Monday by clicking here. I am very hopeful that both of these encouraging new trends will continue.

  • Department of Health Quarantine Guideline Changes

    I would like to begin by apologizing for the number of communications I have been sending, and will probably be sending in the near term, with the codicil that I feel it is important to keep parents/guardians informed and to share information as I receive it. Better to be over-informed than under-informed, or so I believe.

    I hope you had a restful, relaxing winter recess. For many, this week has been anything but restful or relaxing. The events in Washington, D.C., the appearance of new strains of COVID-19, and the slow roll-out of the vaccine have combined to make this a stressful time for many in our community. Hopefully, we will soon begin to see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.

  • Elementary General Education - Second Semester

    We are reaching out in an effort to gather information to help us in our planning for the second semester of the school year. As was the case for the first part of the year, if you decide to have your child participate in the fully remote program, you will be committing to the remote model for the entire semester, from February 1, 2021, through the last day of school, June 25, 2021. Please ONLY complete and submit the following questionnaire if you wish to change your child from their current hybrid learning schedule to the fully remote learning model. Please complete one form for each child whose schedule you wish to change no later than Wednesday, January 13, 2021. If you wish for your child to remain in the hybrid learning model please do not complete the questionnaire.

  • Letter from the Superintendent Regarding Events in Washington, D.C.

    It is likely that your children may have seen or heard news of the violent acts at the U.S. Capital today. The images are disturbing and may be difficult for children (and adults) to process and could result in anxiety or fear. When you add this to the stresses already in place due to the pandemic, the result is that some members of our school community may be experiencing feelings of instability and upset. If your students need to speak to someone about their concerns, please reach out to one of our school counselors, psychologists, or social workers. Contact information is below. Teachers and administrators will remain watchful of your children during school-related discussions about current events. Please share any concerns you have about your children with their teachers, school psychologists, guidance counselors, and/or administrators.

    I hope that you and your families enjoyed yesterday’s snow day. It seems as if the decision to have an old-fashioned snow day was the first universally acclaimed decision I have made since the outset of the pandemic.

    The greasier - the better. As a way to manage the difficulties of COVID-19, each Friday at central office, we try to offset our stress by ordering comfort food from a local establishment.
