Our District

About the Clarkstown Central School District

The Clarkstown Central School District is located in Rockland County, approximately 25 miles northwest of New York City. Consistently rated as one of the top five safest cities in America in the annual Morgan Quitno Safest Cities survey, Clarkstown is an upper middle-class suburban community with a population of about 85,000 residents.

A large District serving nearly 8,000 students from a 31 square-mile area, Clarkstown prides itself on fostering a small school climate, community involvement and a focus on the individual in its nine (9) elementary schools, one (1) middle school, two (2) high schools and one (1) K-12 alternative education center. The District offers innovative programs to its students through web-based technology such as Science 21, Dreambox, Achieve 3000 and Google Chrome. It is also one of the first districts in Rockland County to create a dedicated task force against bullying and implement a bullying prevention policy. District buildings have earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s prestigious EnergyStar, the national symbol for superior energy efficiency and environmental protection, which places us in the top 25% of commercial facilities in the nation. 

The District works in close partnership with the Clarkstown community — a population that highly values, and is exceptionally supportive of, public education.

CCSD, in partnership with the community, will meet the individual academic and social-emotional needs of all students within a safe environment, while empowering them to reach their full potential in a complex society.

Strategic Goals

CCSD has four strategic goals that focus on: advancing learning for all students (Academic); supporting the social-emotional and ethical development of all students (Social-Emotional and Ethical); investing in the skills, knowledge and expertise of the community (Capacity Building); and, maintaining and promoting a safe and respectful environment (Safety).


CCSD is where students become well-rounded critical thinkers able to communicate effectively and become responsible, ethical, contributing members of a global society. As life-long learners, students will be able to use their respective talents and skills to collaborate, innovate and positively change their community and the world.
