Horseheads Central School District sets the standard of educational excellence by fostering innovative thinking, curiosity, and a passion for learning to maximize the potential of each individual. We engage with our local and global communities to provide a student-centered, nurturing environment.
The Horseheads district is highly respected for quality in every aspect of education. We're proud of the education we offer our children. With a commitment to quality education and continuous improvement, the district strives to meet and exceed the needs of our students and community.
Excellence in education is our highest priority. We set high standards for our students, then provide them with the tools to be successful. Initiatives that enhance educational opportunities include:
- District-wide initiatives including curriculum mapping, common assessments, and differentiated instruction
- Ten-year strategic plan
- State-of-the-art technology across the district
- Full- and half-day pre-kindergarten
- Full-day kindergarten
- Character education programs
- Intermediate school (grades 5 and 6) to help students transition more successfully to the secondary level
- Middle level education using the team concept
- Intensive scheduling at the high school level
Intensive scheduling allows high school students to spend more time in class while concentrating on fewer subjects. Similar to a college class schedule, students take four 80-minute classes each semester. Since instituting the schedule in 1996, our high school has seen an increase in students taking higher level courses, a decrease in discipline referrals, an increase in advanced courses, and an increase in the total number of credits students earn.
The opportunities we offer in academic areas and technology are strong and improving each year. Each of our schools has at least one computer lab and mobile laptops with the most up-to-date equipment and software possible. All district buildings have wireless capabilities, and a majority of classrooms have interactive whiteboards. We also have instructional technology specialists to help teachers effectively integrate technology into instruction.
Our arts and athletics programs are among the best in the state. Our music and sports teams consistently bring home regional and state honors, and our drama program stages high quality performances each year.
In addition, each of our schools has a Site-Based Team made up of teachers, school staff, parents and community members. Site teams meet during the summer and throughout the year to work on action plans to increase student achievement. Teams use data to support their decisions and planning efforts.
Each of our elementary schools, the Intermediate School, and the Middle School has a hard-working parent organizations that provides valuable resources to our schools. Parents at the High School are involved in education as well, with a parent advisory council and parent support groups for choir, band, and athletics.
