Welcome to Upper Nyack Elementary School

Hello from Principal Tom DiLeo

Upper Nyack Elementary School is proud to serve a wonderfully dynamic community of approximately 400 students in kindergarten through 5th grade. Our mission is to foster an educational environment where every child has the opportunity to thrive, growing into not only exemplary students but also responsible and compassionate citizens.

We are committed to equipping our students with the essential skills required for success in our ever-evolving world, emphasizing 21st-century competencies such as collaboration, communication, critical thinking, compassion, creativity, and cultural awareness. 

The faculty and staff at Upper Nyack Elementary School are devoted to upholding the highest standards of excellence in education. We are resolute in our dedication to helping each student reach their fullest potential, guiding them towards their aspirations and dreams. By celebrating our differences and embracing the diversity of our district, we cultivate an inclusive environment where everyone feels seen and heard.

In our role as educators, we are entrusted with the profound responsibility of nurturing the intellectual and moral development of our students. We aim to instill values that reflect the ethos of our exceptional community, fostering responsibility and respect among our students. We teach that while behavioral missteps are a natural part of growth, they also present valuable learning opportunities to reflect and persevere. 

We recognize that successful educational outcomes are deeply rooted in parental involvement and open communication. As a resident of this community, I am personally invested in the success of every student at Upper Nyack Elementary School. I encourage you to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have, and I am here to support both you and your child throughout their educational journey.
