The Niskayuna Central School District enjoys an outstanding reputation for a comprehensive and rigorous curriculum, student success, and alumni accomplishments. Our district is comprised of five elementary schools, two middle schools, and a comprehensive high school in the towns of Niskayuna, Glenville, Clifton Park, and Colonie.
The Niskayuna Central School District was formed in 1953 when area residents overwhelmingly voted in favor of centralizing five area districts. The community moved quickly to address the facilities and programming needs of the new school district, including building a comprehensive high school. Learn more about our history
The district’s strategic plan contains three major areas of focus: Curriculum & Programs, Student Culture & Environment, and Partnerships. Established in 2016, the plan has resulted in a series of instructional initiatives and the formation of two community advisory groups that are shaping the future of our schools.
