Vision Statement

In order to contribute to the success of the Niskayuna School District Mission, our Niskayuna Middle Schools will engage the community of students, staff and parents to:

  • Provide a nurturing environment for students to build a strong sense of self, community, and responsibility as they transition from childhood to adolescence;
  • Provide an educational program that challenges and supports all students based on their developmental, academic, and personal needs;
  • Help students develop interpersonal skills and respect for the uniqueness of one another; and
  • Help students develop the learning and thinking skills necessary to become lifelong learners.
