Let each become all he or she is capable of becoming.”

Superintendent's Message

Keene Central School continues to be a strong educational institution in a community that provides strong support for our small school in the Adirondacks.  We strive to continue the longstanding tradition of providing a well-rounded learning environment that allows students many opportunities to be successful.  None of this would be possible without the continued support of this wonderful community.


The 2016-2017 school year will, like other years, bring numerous changes to our school.  While we will remain focused on the fundamental skills of reading, writing, math, and communication skills, among others, we need to examine the changing landscape of student learning.  Moving forward, we will continue to examine our methods and help ensure our students are receiving the best learning opportunities they need in order to succeed at KCS and beyond.


During the 2015-2016 school year we began a Strategic Planning Process to help us guide our future. We are at the point of putting the final touches on the Strategic Plan, and we hope to unveil it sometime this fall.  Our intention is to use the Strategic Plan to help focus the district moving forward.


Changes at the State Education Department, the Governor’s Office and U.S. Department of Education this past year indicate that there will be more changes moving forward.  We cannot control these changes and we will not let them distract us from our mission of providing students the best education possible. Testing is not our focus; our intention is to stay focused on student learning.  We look forward to continuing and strengthening our mission:


Let each become all he or she is capable of becoming.”


We thank you for all of your continuing support in helping us succeed in that mission.
