William E. Cottle School (WEC)
is committed to meeting the needs of every student. We work closely with teachers, parents, and students to provide a rich learning environment. Our programs and instructional practices provide students with skills and strategies that allow them to progress academically, emotionally and socially, and help them to learn and become good citizens throughout their years in school. We are preparing our youth to become life-long learners. We are preparing tomorrow's leaders one day at a time.
The Tuckahoe Middle School
is a community of learners which provides a safe, nurturing environment in which a partnership between the teachers and the community serves the unique academic needs of the students. The classroom environment is disciplined, structured, and inclusive so as to meet the needs of all students while fulfilling the mandate of excellence set forth in the New York State Standards and Assessments. It is the belief of the Tuckahoe Middle School that communication between parent and teacher serve as the catalyst for success.
The students at Tuckahoe Middle School are gifted with an education which empowers them to think independently, speak and write with clarity, foster good decision-making, and continue to create a school-family-community centered value system which celebrates the differences among one another.
Tuckahoe High School
In 2012 we added four new AP courses to our offerings: government, chemistry, psychology, and art. We also have a new debate club and are bringing back the THS newspaper, The Tiger's Roar. Our strong academic emphasis is only one aspect of our school which helps students develop socially and emotionally as they prepare for college and career opportunities. Our experienced staff takes advantage of our small size and works to counsel and motivate each student toward individual success. As a result, we experienced a dramatic increase in regents mastery in 2011-12. THS is a learning community that both holds students to high expectations and allows for individualized growth and development.
Despite our small size, THS still offers a variety of AP courses and electives that provide our students a wide range of classes. As a result, THS students are annually admitted to top colleges and compete among Westchester County's best academically, in the arts, and in athletics. In addition to our wonderful sports program, there are many extra curricular clubs and activities that appeal to a wide variety of student interests.
