About Our School

  • Midland School is an outstanding elementary school located in Rye, New York.  The Midland School Community prides itself on excellence in leadership, student engagement, a rigorous curriculum, high quality teaching, parent involvement, and deep community support.  Midland School's success continues in an environment that is challenging and yet nurturing for its students.

    Our teachers have high expectations, yet are caring and willing to provide appropriate programs for children at all levels of learning.  Our instruction is characterized by a child-centered philosophy that recognizes that each individual is unique.  Our teachers have a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences and personalities and bring multiple teaching methods, techniques and styles to each classroom, differentiating for the needs of the individual child.  However, each one shares the goal of success for all our students.

    Our students are caring and involved members of the community in which they live.  While the children of Midland strive for academic success, many are involved in other endeavors as well.  From drama to sports to volunteer work, the children in our community bring a sense of pride to the teachers and parents that love and care for them.  Through our character education program, students focus on traits such as empathy, responsibility and citizenship and it has helped to create a wonderfully caring and sensitive student body.  We are also fortunate that the diversity of our students provides a rich cultural awareness in each classroom.  Additionally, our students are some of the top performing in the state.

    Involving the family in the student’s education is one of Midland’s priorities.  Increasingly environmentally aware, we communicate electronically with parents when possible.  Parents are encouraged to communicate with teachers via e-mail.  Teachers are always happy to schedule an appointment to speak with you about your child by phone or in person.  Through special programs and the efforts of our Parent Teacher Organization, the Midland community is informed of and included in their child’s education.  Our faculty and parents work together well beyond the conventional school day providing the students with programs that enhance learning and showcase our accomplishments. 

    Midland School is successful because we all work harmoniously to promote an ideal academic and social environment for the children of our school.

  • RCSD Community Update: 12/3/21

    I believe I might have experienced a Hanukkah miracle. As you may know, the New York State Department of Health has a new Commissioner. Dr. Howard Zucker resigned a few months ago and Dr. Mary Bassett took the reins of the department just this Wednesday. I managed to wait until Thursday to send an email introducing myself and sharing some opinions about where we need to head in terms of navigating COVID in the schools across the State. The miracle occurred last night when I received an actual response from Dr. Bassett -- something I had never experienced in my previous attempts of engaging with the NYS DOH Commissioner. This causes me to be cautiously optimistic that we may be able to exert some practical influence on future decision-making from the NYS DOH. Fingers crossed!

Mental health professionals are onsite at RHS for students and staff all day today in the Library Media Center, Counseling Suite, and Conference Room A. We continue to receive counseling assistance from the Middle School and Elementary School Counselors and Clinicians as well as neighboring school districts and community organizations. The BluePath Service dogs are also back to provide support and comfort during community lunch. These supports will continue to be available for the remainder of the school week.

    It has been a very difficult day at Rye High School. Morgan was a wonderful person. Anyone who knew him even a little was treated to his bubbly personality, his quick wit, and his unfailing kindness. He will be very much missed. Students and teachers were deeply impacted by the loss of one of their own. Our counselors, faculty, and staff have been incredible in providing support. We are truly grateful for the assistance of the Rye Youth Council and the Harrison and Pleasantville schools, all of whom have provided counseling support, and for the Rye Police Department for bringing four BluePath service dogs to the school to provide canine comfort. Support is available over the weekend and in the days to come. Please see the earlier email from RCSD Communications with contact information and bereavement resources.

    I hope everyone had a meaningful Veterans’ Day holiday yesterday. Midland School students had a chance to watch a terrific video of active and retired members of the United States Military sharing their thoughts and hopes on Veterans Day put together by Midland PTO members Kristan Watson and Paige McCarthy. The veterans' inspiring words (and their close ties to the Midland School family) make this a moving tribute to our country's brave men and women in uniform.

    On Tuesday evening, the Director of the CDC approved a CDC panel recommendation that the Pfizer vaccine be approved for emergency use in children ages 5-11. This allows for vaccinations for this group to begin immediately. We hope that the school district will be authorized to become a vaccine site, however, we are still waiting on County and Department of Health approval. I will of course reach out to our elementary school parents if we are granted permission, but in the meantime, I understand that local pharmacies and pediatricians’ offices are vaccinating. I have also been in touch with Greenwich Hospital and they will vaccinate New York residents. Although they have no appointments currently available, they recommend checking back here as they will release additional slots:
