Message from the Principal : Nicole Saieva

Principal of Nyack High School

Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year.  When visiting this site, please review the resources listed on the guidance, athletic, and subject area department pages.  In addition, more immediate information can be found in the feed under “Need to Know”, and “Letters Sent Home”.   

As you will notice when reviewing the Program of Studies, Nyack High School offers a variety of interesting courses in each of the academic areas.  Students are encouraged to speak with their parents, teachers, and counselors about participating in our robust dual enrollment program, Advanced Placement courses, Project Lead the Way Pathways, and our Authentic Science Research Program. 

While at Nyack High School, students enjoy participating in the performing and visual arts, co-curricular activities, and athletic events.  We welcome our students to become involved in the school community by taking advantage of all we offer. 

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please call your child’s guidance counselor, teachers, the assistant principals, or me.

We look forward to working with you this year, and are grateful for your continued support.
