The Valley Stream Central High School District is one of only three New York State Districts covering grades 7-12 exclusively. The District operates one junior high school for grades 7-9 (Memorial Junior High School); one senior high school for grades 10-12 (Central High School); and two combined junior and senior high schools for grades 7 -12 (North High School and South High School). The four buildings are located on approximately 58 acres of land.
Students enter the District's secondary schools after graduation from one of the 10 schools maintained by Elementary Districts Thirteen, Twenty-four and Thirty--whose combined outer boundaries are coterminous with the boundary of the High School District. In addition to the major portion of the Villages of Valley Stream and most of North Valley Stream, the District also consists of parts of Elmont, Franklin Square, Lynbrook and Malverne.
Approximately 4,600 students in grades 7 through 12 are enrolled in our schools and are served by a professional staff of over 450 teachers, specialists, administrators, social workers and registered nurses.
A nine member Board of Education governs the District, which is composed of three appointees from each of the Elementary District Boards. The Board members receive no salary, nor any other financial compensation, either direct or indirect, for their services. All Board of Education meetings are open to the public. The meeting dates are published elsewhere on this website.
