The Hastings-on-Hudson School District, which includes the village of Hastings-on-Hudson and a portion of the Town of Greenburgh, consists of three schools: Hillside Elementary School, Farragut Middle School, and Hastings High School. Each school strives for, and achieves academic excellence. Exceptional teachers, high expectations for students and strong community support are important contributors to the success of the district. At all grade levels, our students consistently perform at the highest level on local, statewide and national tests. These results place them among the top performers in Westchester, a county with some of the finest schools in the nation. Each year, most of our graduates enroll in a wide range of private and state colleges and universities. Many students are named New York State Regents Scholars, and earn recognition as National Merit Scholarship Winners and Honor Society Members.
Extra-curricular activities are an integral part of the school experience. Over 75% of the student body participate in a wide variety of programs. Annually, students are selected as All-County musicians and athletes, and many gain recognition for their contributions to the visual arts.
Of equal importance, Hastings-on-Hudson is a caring school system. Students' individual needs are understood and addressed. We are proud to be large enough to offer a rich and varied curriculum and small enough to know and care about each student. The district enjoys a stable population base, and the approximately 8,500 residents support a talented staff and enriched program. The community's high expectations are reflected in the training, experience, skills and abilities of the school district's staff members. Enthusiastic, dedicated, supportive and involved, our staff are concerned with the education of each individual student. Staff members actively promote parental involvement in the educational process.
One of the unique features of the Hastings School District is the close working relationship of the Board of Education, the staff, the students and community members. Residents are active in the educational system: they participate in the P.T.S.A., volunteer for school activities and serve on committees. Civic organizations support our schools and student groups. The district is fiscally independent and governed by a seven member Board of Education elected by the district residents.
