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.

    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.

  • 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
