A National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence serving about 1,000 students in grades 6-8, we offer a solid educational and nurturing environment in which learning and the personal growth of each student are given the highest priority. Our students can take advantage of a range of academic experiences including foreign language instruction, physical sciences taught in our unique Planetarium, hands-on experimental science courses in our state-of-the-art science labs, and accelerated English, math and science strands for gifted students. Our rigorous curriculum is supplemented with living history days, school trips to theaters, historic sites and visits to cities such as Washington, DC. We also hold an exchange program with a middle school near Madrid, Spain.
Character education plays a significant role in our school. Our students and faculty have given much time and resources to many successful community service projects.
Finally, most of our students are active in extra-curricular activities, including band and orchestra, drama, choral groups, sports teams, yearbook, school newspaper and other clubs and groups.

Give a Book! Participate in Port Chester Schools' BookShare Fair March 26-April 28
Bring your new and gently used books for students of all ages to any of our schools. You'll find a bin in the entry hallway for your donation.
Help us inspire a child to get lost in a book and we'll ensure that they go to a child in need. You'd be surprised how many children don't have a book to call their own. Research has proven that children are more likely to want to read when they own a book - and reading and writing are critical to becoming an independent member of society.
Your donated books will be sent to a national non-profit organization called GiveMoreHugs. In October, some of those books (and others) will be given to Port Chester students by Give More Hugs. Thank you!Port Chester Public Schools
