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.
