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!

    I hope everyone will turn out in droves this Sunday at 11:00 a.m. for the Class of 2021 graduation float parade. 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.
