The Mamaroneck Schools strive to fulfill its mission based on principles of equity and challenge with a school population that is both ethnically and economically diverse and has grown by about 16% in the past ten years to a total enrollment of approximately 5000 students in 2008. The district consists of four neighborhood elementary schools, one middle school and one high school.

We try to create educational environments where students are well-known and feel a sense of connection. In the Hommocks Middle School, the House Model was implemented to create a small school-within-a school setting. Each house has approximately 300 students, 100 per grade level and utilizes 12 classrooms that are contiguous or within close proximity to each other. Team meetings amongst teachers provide time for the staff to discuss the progress of individual students, plan curriculum and interdisciplinary projects as well as consult with support staff. Each house works to create bonds between students and staff and amongst students.

Personalization at the high school was also one of the goals behind the extensive renovations and addition undertaken at Mamaroneck High School. The high school strives to create ways for students to make connections, be it through academic engagement, the arts, extracurricular activities and/or athletics. The new facilities offer students more places to gather and meet in groups formally and informally in the middle of a very large campus and give them easier access to support staff of counselors, school psychologist and a student activities coordinator.

Academically, the high school offers some interesting electives in addition to the usual Regents and Advanced Placement courses. A fairly new science elective is called "Criminalistics". It focuses on the use of the sciences of biology, chemistry and physics in crime solving. The "Art of Film" class teaches students to discover new ways to look at film. They see films, read scripts, biographies and critical commentaries as well as write their own critical and analytical paper on an individual filmmaker. The study of Chinese within the Foreign Language department engages many students who continue to pursue their study of Chinese in college and beyond. Chinese is a five year course sequence beginning in middle school. Students learn oral and written language skills and many are able to join their teacher on a two-week trip to China before they graduate.
