Welcome to the North Shore School District, a dynamic educational community made up of five public schools that serve a rich mix of students, whose academic performance is consistently high among all measures. This enables us to maintain a position as one of the strongest public school systems in the Nation. Our district includes Glen Head Elementary School, Glenwood Landing Elementary School, Sea Cliff Elementary School, North Shore Middle School and North Shore High School. Each school is uniquely successful and committed to working towards a cohesive approach to learning with an eye on continuous improvement for everyone in our learning community.
In North Shore, we seek to inspire our students to engage in experiences that will position them to delve deeply with content through the lenses of inquiry, conceptual mastery and opportunities aimed at achieving our mission and discovering their dreams. We believe that learning should be purposeful, exciting, exploratory, joyful, and with expectations for boundless possibilities. Committed to growth, our schools seek to position students and teachers to thrive in environments that foster academic achievement while balancing the need for respect, wellness, and social emotional learning that enables children to take responsible risks and develop strong process skills that enable them to master content across a broad range of academic areas.
Together with our Trustees and consistent with our mission statement, we will remain resolute in our commitment to providing our students with an education that emphasizes the importance of our Shared Valued Outcomes of Collaboration, Communication, Thinking, Problem-solving, Innovation, Commitment to the growth of oneself and a genuine Concern for Others. Our academic program is designed to target the individual and collective growth of all. At the North Shore Schools, we offer a robust K-12 academic program that provides rich opportunities in the humanities, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics), social and physical sciences, world languages, fine and performing arts, physical education, health, and athletics.
We are proud of the programs that we offer and are constantly seeking opportunities to strengthen them. We welcome your participation and value the partnerships we share with our parents and the entire North Shore community. I encourage you to explore our rich array of educational courses and curricula. Please contact your child’s teacher, principal, or me with any questions that you may have.
