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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    In keeping with the theme of 2020, today we are dealing with heavy rain and high winds resulting from the remnants of hurricane Zeta. Even with the weather challenges of the day, Halloween is still a source of lots of fun in the schools. Children came dressed in costume and enjoyed festive activities and programs.
