About Our School

  • Welcome and thank you for visiting the Osborn School web site.  Osborn School is an exceptional school within the reputable Rye City School District.   It was established in 1957 as one of three elementary schools in the beautiful community of Rye, New York, which is a small suburban community on the Long Island Sound, approximately 20 miles north of New York City.  We pride ourselves on being a neighborhood school, which serves kindergarten through fifth grade. We are a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, nationally recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a model educational organization that demonstrates a strong commitment to educational excellence for all students.

    The Osborn School campus sits on 3 acres of land, which is surrounded by playgrounds, playing fields and gardens also known as our outdoor classrooms. Our current enrollment is approximately 600 students and we have a faculty of 70 full time and part time members. The architecture and décor of Osborn School is traditional, which provides a true child-centered and community feel.  We have an auditorium which is used to hold school assemblies, music performances and community events; a center courtyard with a Japanese garden, fish pond and outdoor reading area; an exterior courtyard with fruit and vegetable gardens maintained by the children; a large gymnasium for physical and health education; a computer lab with 25 desk top computers, iPads and other mobile devices; a library with thousands of fiction and nonfiction texts for students, educators and parents; and 31 grade-level classrooms, as well as over 10 additional classrooms for studies in music, art and Spanish. There is a feeling of enthusiasm, passion, energy and a sense of community as you enter Osborn School. 

    The high quality of education at Osborn School has been achieved by a dedicated and caring faculty, staff and parent organization.  During all times of the year our hallways are filled with student artwork and written pieces that align with the New York State Common Core Learning Standards.  In all of our classrooms you will find educators promoting student inquiry, conceptual learning, discussion and academic risk-taking in a supportive and nurturing manner.  Throughout our school students, faculty, staff and parents are expected to live the iC.A.R.E. way- demonstrating Concern And Respect Every day.

    Osborn School is extremely privileged to have a diverse population. We have numerous families from all around the world, children and adults with various talents and children with various learning styles.  Osborn School is fortunate and grateful for the educational and social experiences these differences provide the school community. 

    The family/school relationship is a key factor in making Osborn School an outstanding educational institution. Our supportive relationship with our Parent Teacher Organization allows us to work together to provide our children with unique, creative and motivating programs that take them beyond the textbook.

    If you are currently an Osborn family, thank you for your dedication and support of our school.  If you are a prospective family, we encourage you to look around our web site to learn more about our school and contact us if you have any questions.  We would be happy to welcome you into our school community!

The 10-float parade starts at the train station, makes its way down Purchase Street, winds its way around Fireman’s Circle, then proceeds down Milton Road before ending in front of the High School on Parsons Street. We hope the whole community will come out to cheer on our seniors.

    Please remember that there is no school next Friday, May 28, due to the snow/emergency giveback day. I will also not be sending a community update that Friday. If there is new information from the State or Department of Health related to the schools, I will communicate that separately.

  • RCSD Community Update 5/14/21

    As is the case with almost everything this year, we’ve had a hard time getting an answer from the State Education Department about snow/emergency closings. After finally receiving some clarity, I can now communicate that all District schools and offices will be closed next Friday, May 28, as a result of only using two snow/emergency days this year. Each year, the school district calendar is built with a certain number of snow days that exceed our required number of school days. When we do not use all of our snow days, we have what we call ‘giveback days’ when schools are closed. As Governor Cuomo declared a state of emergency on one of our snow days, we have a ‘giveback’ day which is noted on the approved calendar as May 28. Thank you for all of your flexibility as we continue to grapple with constant changes in guidance and mandates.
