Welcome to the Irvington Union Free School District! The Irvington School District, located approximately 23 miles north of mid-Manhattan, includes the Village of Irvington, a portion of southern Tarrytown, and part of the unincorporated areas of Greenburgh. The District encompasses a 4.5 square mile area. Irvington residents are involved in the educational system. They participate in an active PTSA and the Irvington Education Foundation, volunteer for school activities, serve on building site decision committees and advise the Board of Education on long-range planning.
The mission of the Irvington School District is to create a challenging and supportive learning environment in which each student attains his or her highest potential for academic achievement, critical thinking and lifelong learning. Our schools encourage the discovery and development of students’ individual strengths, skills and talents, and foster social and civic responsibility. Four schools serve the District to achieve that mission: Dows Lane Elementary School (K-3), Main Street School (4-5), Irvington Middle School (6-8) and Irvington High School (9-12).
At Dows Lane, the unique quality of Irvington’s educational system is quickly established by a careful analysis of each entering child’s potential and, with the cooperation of the entire professional staff, academic achievement is the prime objective.
Irvington Middle School was recognized as a National School of Excellence. The school, located on a campus that is shared with Irvington High School, provides a smooth transition to pupils as they move from the elementary school toward a more rigorous academic high school program, as well as a nurturing environment as they grow into young adults.
Irvington High School was also selected as a National School of Excellence. The high school’s curriculum is designed to challenge and inspire students to pursue their passions in their futures.
