About Our District

  • Collage of Rye Area NY public venues The City of Rye is located in southern Westchester County, New York, on the shore of Long Island Sound, 25 miles from New York City. Approximately 15,000 residents enjoy 5.5 miles of water vistas, nature and wildlife preserves, and open spaces, in addition to an active downtown, a municipal golf club, walking trails and history dating back to the 1600s.

    The Rye City School District includes three National Blue Ribbon elementary schools of Excellence serving grades K-5. Rye Middle School, also a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, serves students grades 6-8, and Rye High School, ranked among the top high schools in the country by U.S. News and World Report and Newsweek Magazine, provides a full range of curriculum opportunities at Regents, honors and Advanced Placement levels for ninth through twelfth graders. The Academy at Rye High School is a school of innovative learning, offering rigorous instruction that is interdisciplinary and founded in real-life applications through a largely project-based learning model.  

    The mission of the Rye City School District, in partnership with the community, is to ensure that every student is capable of becoming a life-long learner who can thrive in a global environment as a self-reliant and socially responsible citizen. To realize this mission, our schools will provide an engaging, challenging, personalized program that supports each individual’s talents and potential, in a fiscally responsible manner.

District News

  • RCSD Community Update: 1/15/21

    The District has seen a marked decrease in the number of new COVID-19 cases and in the number of students, faculty, and staff required to quarantine. There have been two positive cases at Rye High School and one at Midland School this week. Only the Midland case required any additional individual people to be quarantined, and, due to the new quarantine guidelines, the number of people required to quarantine as a result was quite small. Our hard work and months of lobbying the Department of Health seem to have paid off, enabling us to quarantine far fewer individuals. For more information about the Westchester County Department of Health’s new quarantine guidelines, see my communication from this Monday by clicking here. I am very hopeful that both of these encouraging new trends will continue.

  • Department of Health Quarantine Guideline Changes

    I would like to begin by apologizing for the number of communications I have been sending, and will probably be sending in the near term, with the codicil that I feel it is important to keep parents/guardians informed and to share information as I receive it. Better to be over-informed than under-informed, or so I believe.

    I hope you had a restful, relaxing winter recess. For many, this week has been anything but restful or relaxing. The events in Washington, D.C., the appearance of new strains of COVID-19, and the slow roll-out of the vaccine have combined to make this a stressful time for many in our community. Hopefully, we will soon begin to see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.

  • Letter from the Superintendent Regarding Events in Washington, D.C.

    It is likely that your children may have seen or heard news of the violent acts at the U.S. Capital today. The images are disturbing and may be difficult for children (and adults) to process and could result in anxiety or fear. When you add this to the stresses already in place due to the pandemic, the result is that some members of our school community may be experiencing feelings of instability and upset. If your students need to speak to someone about their concerns, please reach out to one of our school counselors, psychologists, or social workers. Contact information is below. Teachers and administrators will remain watchful of your children during school-related discussions about current events. Please share any concerns you have about your children with their teachers, school psychologists, guidance counselors, and/or administrators.

    I hope that you and your families enjoyed yesterday’s snow day. It seems as if the decision to have an old-fashioned snow day was the first universally acclaimed decision I have made since the outset of the pandemic.

    The greasier - the better. As a way to manage the difficulties of COVID-19, each Friday at central office, we try to offset our stress by ordering comfort food from a local establishment.
