Updated Budget Information
Each year, our district needs to make tough choices to keep our system strong amid a tough economy: Providing a quality, enriching and safe education to all students is our goal. Continuing to meet this goal becomes more difficult each year as we are faced with fewer resources, increasing costs while balancing the financial interests of the community.
We actively seek community participation in the budget process and hope you will be able to attend some of the upcoming sessions at the New Rochelle High School Library, 7:00 P.M. Click here to read letter from Board President Lianne Merchant.

Dr. Brian Osborne's Latest on The Huffington Post - Preparing Students for College Begins Earlier Than Most Parents Expect
High school seniors who applied Early Decision or Early Action to their first choice colleges in November are now hearing whether they've been admitted. In the New Rochelle schools, we have been fortunate to learn our students have been accepted so far to Carnegie Mellon University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Northwestern University, University of Notre Dame, University of Pennsylvania, The College of William and Mary, and Yale University.
Yet the college admissions journey for our students didn't start this year, or even in high school. In New Rochelle, we offer opportunities for children to visit colleges while they're still in elementary school. Children from Columbus School recently visited Iona College.
