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!

  • RCSD Community Update: 9/5/21

    I hope you and your families are recovering well after tropical storm Ida. The impact of the storm on Rye has been significant with damage to homes, businesses, community spaces and, unfortunately, our schools. Across the district, all school buildings sustained flood damage. We will need to slightly alter our opening schedule to allow for clean up, repair and classroom set up that was delayed because of the storm. The school year will now begin for all students in person on Monday, September 13th.

  • RCSD Fall Opening Update: 8/25/21

    I hope you’ve had a good summer. Thank you so much for all of your support and flexibility as we navigated the pandemic over the past two years. We are excited that our schools will be fully open for in-person learning. Our first day of school is Thursday, September 9. In August, the District received guidance regarding school opening from the New York State Education Department (NYSED) based on CDC and American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations. On August 24, incoming Governor Kathy Hochul directed the Department of Health (DOH) to institute universal masking for anyone entering New York schools. In addition, the Governor announced that all school employees will be required to show proof of vaccination or participate in regular COVID testing. We expect more details on this order in the coming days. This is a fairly lengthy communication as there is much to share.
