As our School District succeeds, so do our students...

A uniquely wonderful place to live and learn, Pocantico Hills has an unparalleled physical plan and surroundings adjacent to Rockefeller State Park Preserve with ready access to both the cultural resources of Westchester County and New York City and the beauty and natural resources of the Hudson Valley countryside.
