Student Residency Verification Tip Line

We work to ensure that students who attend our schools actually live within the boundaries of the district.  Non-resident students may not attend school without formal permission from the Central Office and are required to pay tuition.   If you have information about any non-resident students who are attending our schools without permission, please send an email to:  nonresidencytips@portchesterschools.org.  
All tips will be treated as strictly confidential.

Línea de Sugerencia para la Verificación de Residencia del Estudiante

Trabajamos para asegurar que los estudiantes que asisten a nuestras escuelas en realidad viven dentro de los límites del distrito.   Los estudiantes no residentes no pueden asistir a la escuela sin permiso formal de la Oficina Central y están obligados a pagar la matrícula.  Si usted tiene información sobre algún estudiante que no es residente y  asiste a nuestras escuelas sin permiso, por favor envíe un correo electrónico al: nonresidencytips@portchesterschools.org.
Todas las sugerencias serán tratadas de manera estrictamente confidencial.

From the Principal

Our school was the only public school in Westchester to be named a 2010 National Blue Ribbon School.  This is quite an achievement.  It reflects our community's determination to improve our school and represents ten years of commitment, methodical planning, teamwork, excellent teaching, and support from our entire school community.  Without the dedication of our teachers, our parents, our PTA and our central administrative team, we would not have achieved this honor.
Congratulations also to our students.  Having absorbed our commitment to excellence, they work hard every day to master science, math, grammar, reading, and more.  They create wonderful art and music. And they learn the skills they need to succeed not only in school but in life.  They are an outstanding group of boys and girls.
