Dear New Rochelle Community,
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! I hope that you have had a relaxing, rejuvenating summer and are ready for a fresh start! As the cycle of seasons turns toward autumn, our teachers, principals and other staff members are eager to ring in a new school year of learning and growth.

You’ll notice some enhancements to our schools as our $106.5-million series of construction projects continues to restore the comfort, functionality and the attractiveness of our buildings. Phase II is nearly complete; New Rochelle High School students will enter the building through an attractively restored Clove Road entrance, and our high school athletes will play on newly installed turf. McKenna Field will soon be illuminated with stadium lighting. Construction crews are sprucing up the exteriors of Isaac E. Young Middle School and Jefferson Elementary School as well.
In our schools, students will find a high quality, challenging education – New Rochelle High School offers more than 30 Advanced Placement courses, for example – and a full range of extra-curricular activities. Our engaging musical and theater performances and rousing sporting events build pride in our community, and our many clubs fulfill virtually any interest.
Parents and guardians, we encourage you to be an active partner in your child’s education and we welcome your daily involvement. We are eager to show you how we educate students the New Rochelle way, ready to meet the needs of the whole child as we embrace the rich diversity that makes New Rochelle a community like no other.
With all that we offer, it is easy to grow excited whether you are returning to school or entering our doors for the first time. We will be ready to welcome you as we embark on a brand new year.
Dr. Brian G. Osborne
Superintendent of Schools
City School District of New Rochelle
