Hello Nyack High School Students, Families, Alumni, and Staff members:
While focusing on academics at Nyack High School, we believe in educating the whole child. As you review the 2016-2017 Program of Studies, various class pages, athletic news, schedules, and other helpful information, you will notice that we offer many opportunities for student engagement beyond the classroom door. Our rigorous academic program, combined with co-curricular opportunities, a comprehensive performing arts program, and numerous athletic teams are meant to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of each of our students.
You will also find that Nyack High School is a unified team with students and staff working together toward common goals. We strive to reach our fullest potential as individuals and as one collective learning community. We understand the world is ever changing, and we work diligently to further develop our understanding of what needs to be mastered to successfully compete in a global society. Together, we work to strengthen our skills in critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity in an effort to keep up with the demands of the 21st Century.

The high school's literary magazine, "Dimensions," was presented with a National Award of Excellence for Student Literacy Magazines by the National Council of Teachers of English. In our English Department, there is shared commitment in fostering a love of writing among our students who participate in such extra-curricular programs. This collective effort certainly contributes directly to the departmental goal of generating a "Culture of Literacy."
Congratulations to Mr. Sheehan and Ms. Moldovan, the advisors of "Dimensions," as well as for all the student writers and editors upon receiving this prestigious award. We are all proud of this achievement!
