• The Poughkeepsie City School District is on a journey of success. Our students are surrounded by a community of adults who are interested in creating a quality educational system that will position children to reach their full potential as students and future citizens of the City of Poughkeepsie. 

    Our commitment to providing students with pathways to the opportunity that will lead to achievement and success must be paramount in everything that we do and stand for. Through student-centered effective and transformational leadership, quality educational opportunities, school and community engagement, and unrelenting pursuit to achieve greater school outcomes for children, the Poughkeepsie City Schools will develop and grow greater access, equity, opportunity, and quality across the system. Our newly established Mission Statement exemplifies what we all can be for our children and how they will benefit. 

    We are champions of children who inspire and nurture the whole child by providing innovative, high-quality educational opportunities that prepare all students to embark on individual paths of success in a globally diverse community.

    And, we are spreading the word about all of the great things happening in our district!

    Our goal is to keep the community and our strategic partners informed of the many great things that continue to occur throughout the District.
