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: 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!

    As we navigate a tragic loss, it is important to share that we are continuing to provide resources and support for students and teachers. 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:
