Education for Schodack
Public education is a priority in Schodack, but not a function of town government. School districts -- many of which in New York include portions of several towns -- are governed by elected School Boards, whose members are responsible for setting school budgets, levying taxes, and oversight of the administration and educational process in their districts. Depending on the neighborhood where they live, school children in Schodack attend public schools in one of four such districts.
The Schodack Central, Averill Park, Ichabod Crane and East Greenbush school districts provide public, K-12 education in schools that are among New York's most highly rated. At all grade levels, student achievement as reflected in standardized testing directed by the NYS Board of Regents is well above the median. High school graduation rates are high and most graduates win college admission to New York's State University or Community College systems or to highly competitive private colleges.
Various private schools and academies offer additional educational opportunities. Choices in the immediate area span day care and pre-kindergarten through primary and high school and range from denominational, religiously-focused institutions to military academies to traditional, independent, college preparatory schools and include both residential- and day-programs.
