North Colonie is consistently ranked in the top tier of high performing school districts in Upstate NY.  We were also voted, by our employees, as the #1 Top Workplace for large employers in 2016.  Our continued success in both of these areas makes North Colonie CSD a top choice for parents, students and staff.

   One of our District recruitment goals is to enhance the applicant pool of qualified candidates by actively seeking those who also bring a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, thoughts and ideas. Our growing student population continues to become more diverse in many areas including global backgrounds, socio-economics, multiple languages and individual self-discovery/expression.  We at North Colonie are committed to supporting the development of the "whole" child and we believe this effort is enhanced greatly by empowering the synergy and compassion which results from an open and ongoing dialogue among colleagues whose various life experiences help shape a larger world view.


All students are provided the opportunity and necessary support to engage in relevant, challenging work which contributes to their academic and social growth and development.
