When I approach a child, he inspires in me two sentiments; tenderness for what he is, and respect for what he may become. - Louis Pasteur
This statement might just sum up the reason we can be hopeful every day. Children are our future, and are - without a doubt - the reason we do what we do each day at Remsen.
Every child at Remsen is treated with not only tenderness, but with great respect and dignity - every Remsen student has the potential to become something incredible. When we approach our work, and when our Board of Education sets goals for the District, and when we set high expectations - it is because we believe in our kids.
We continue to offer opportunities for our students, realizing the ever-increasing importance of engaging our students in learning that matters and is relevant to them and their lives after graduation. We are in a state of amazing growth - for example, our 3-8 test scores in both ELA and Math show double digit improvement in just one year and we’ve increased our enrollment by 8% between June and September, 2015. We continue to boast one of the highest graduation rates in the entire region; we have made a commitment to start our students on their journey to a fulfilling future with a fully supported, full-day pre-kindergarten program. There is an incredible sense of optimism at Remsen Central School, and we are ALL IN!
There is an exciting year ahead. Please join us in our mission, and learn about our goals for moving the needle forward to high expectations for our students, our staff and our community. We are the District to watch, and the natural choice for excellence in PK-12 education in the Utica region. With opportunities so close to us in terms of the broad choices for jobs in nano-technology and related fields, superb higher education all around, dynamic career & technical choices and solid community values - we are at the center of it all.
It’s an exciting time for students in the Remsen Central School District - join us!
