From the Superintendent

“We have a highly moral and very serious responsibility to prepare our young people for life after their school years in Nyack.  If we accept that the world is rapidly changing: what type of education do our students need?"

In keeping with our District mission and incorporating the results from our Community Priorities Survey, we have established "Core Elements of Education" that we believe are necessary competencies that all students should embody to become global citizens with true success:  Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, Compassion, Core Mastery, Cultural Awareness.  

Join Us as we begin a new year with renewed energy and vision.  Welcome to our new websites!

Dr. James Montesano

  • Community Forum & "EdTalk"

    This past May at Nyack Center, Dr. Montesano gave a compelling presentation on the Core Elements of Education, the importance of happiness (see Featured Video on District home page) and how it relates to success.  Community members, parents, local leaders and District staff gathered for an exciting evening that showcased how Nyack Schools are finding innovative solutions to inspire a love of learning in our students. This was the first in a series of upcoming forums and "EdTalks" that will offer demos, displays and dialogue with administrators and teachers to engage our community.  We look forward to seeing you at our next Community Forum in Fall 2016. Date TBD.

  • We have a NEW District Logo!

    A group of NHS art students have been diligently working with the Superintendent over the past several months to create a new District logo that is aligned with a renewed District vision and the "Core Elements of Education": critical thinking, content mastery, creativity, communication, collaboration, cultural awareness and compassion.  The logo proudly encapsulates iconic images of our community and three figures symbolizing students as global citizens that embody: equity, innovation and optimism.

  • Community Priorities Survey Results Inform District's Vision

    In the Community Priorities Survey, Nyack Public Schools asked parents, staff, and the community for feedback on where we, the District, should focus our efforts to best prepare students for life after high school. The purpose of the survey was to determine the community’s priorities and how well the district’s current initiatives are aligned with those priorities. 

    The results informed District leadership in developing the Core Elements of Education and coincide with a renewed District vision that addresses what type of education our students need to be truly successful in our changing world.  Together, we are finding solutions and imagining education transformed.
