Welcome to the Campus School!

         The Alternative Campus High School is a part of New Rochelle High School, that has been designed to provide approximately eighty students with a small, supportive setting in which to pursue their high school diploma.  The program offers high school students who have not experienced the success that they are capable of achieving, or the comfort that they are seeking in a school setting, an opportunity to apply for a “fresh start” in our alternative setting.  Student’s who do not demonstrate a strong motivation to enter our program will not be admitted, as we believe that initial motivation is a necessary prerequisite to engagement and success.

         The program provides students with small classes, personalized attention, academic supports, counseling supports, and a variety of instructional approaches. Our smaller learning environment also provides students with a greater sense of belonging to our small community.  Opportunities for community service and cultural enrichment are also provided as part of our program.    We strive to help students improve their self-esteem and we work diligently to help insure that each student experiences and achieves success.  The overwhelming majority of students who enroll in our program demonstrate improved attendance, grades and credit accumulation and go on to earn their New Rochelle High School, Regents Diploma.  After graduation, the majority of our alumni enroll in college.  Other graduates have entered the armed forces, trade school programs or gone directly into the work force.   Almost all continue to maintain ties with our school community, reflecting back to us, a sense of appreciation for the opportunity that they had, to attend our alternative setting.

  • ALMS PTA Hosts Science Festival

    Science experiments, games and exhibits enthralled students, parents and teachers at the Albert Leonard Middle School PTA Science Festival on June 5. Hosted by the PTA's STEAM Committee, it was the first science festival at the school in recent history. Among those taking part in the educational festivities was Albot, a robot created by the LEGO League Robotics Club at ALMS.
     
    "The festival was a huge success and exceeded any and all initial expectations," said ALMS Principal John Barnes. "We give great thanks to the PTA steering committee who secured the grant and worked so hard to plan every aspect of the event. In addition, we had many Albert Leonard Middle School faculty members who participated in the event from planning to volunteering, and we thank the many fabulous high school, middle school and elementary school students who volunteered their time setting up, hosting experiments, distributing food and sharing their work with us."
     
    Participating in the Science Festival were: the BioBus, which brings science exploration to students; IDEA New Rochelle, which promotes arts and technology; Mercy College's Center for STEM Education; It Takes a Village to Educate a Child, which offers STEM camps; We Future Cycle; Sarah Lawrence College Center for the Urban River at Beczak; and MacInspires.  Interactive tables offered demonstrations of DNA extraction, shibori tie-dye technique, physics experiments and more.
     
    The event was part of a national PTA program in which 30 schools across the United States were awarded a grant from Bayer.

  • Adopted 2018-19 Budget Stays Within Tax Cap

    The New Rochelle Board of Education tonight (5/29) adopted a new 2018-2019 budget that stays within the state tax cap while preserving educational programs and allowing for additional student social-emotional support and safety measures.
     
    With input and direction from the Board of Education, the budget, proposed by the Superintendent, removed $3.4 million from the tax levy that was included in the $272.8 million spending plan rejected by voters on May 15. The reduction was needed to produce a budget with a tax levy increase that stays at or below the state cap of 2.231 percent for New Rochelle.
     
    "This budget protects the District's core strategic priorities and avoids any unnecessary cuts that would directly impact students," Superintendent Dr. Brian Osborne said. "It also allows the District to stay within the tax cap and maintain the fiscal health that we have worked so hard to improve."
     
    The measures total $3,398,617 in savings, reductions and additional revenue. They are:
    • $736,867: Foregoing the planned addition of three psychologists and three social workers.
    • $642,219: Foregoing the inclusion of several contingent positions placed in the budget for unexpected needs.
    • $200,000: A reduction from the initial $420,000 set aside to implement safety and security recommendations from the Task Force on Reducing Violence in the Lives of Children and Youth and from Guidepost Solutions. (The proposed budget allocates $200,000 for the recommendations.)
    • $598,778: Savings from a retirement incentive offered earlier this year that were not known when the initial budget was presented.
    • $245,069: Savings in technology purchasing by eliminating redundancy and products that are under-used.
    • $975,684: Appropriation from the employee retirement system reserve fund.
    The new plan retains the addition of four high school counselors, one in each house, to address the need for social and emotional development. It would also retain the addition of 2.1 full-time equivalent (FTE) English as a New Language teachers divided among Albert Leonard Middle School, Isaac E. Young Middle School and William B. Ward Elementary School; three special education teachers (one each at the high school and each of the middle schools); and a teaching assistant and education aide, both in special education, also for the high school.
     
    A public hearing on the budget will be held June 5, also at 7 p.m. in the high school library. The plan will be put to a public vote on June 19.
     
    If voters reject the second budget, the District must adopt a contingency budget, which restricts the tax levy to the same size as this year's - $204,441,642. To reach that level, the District would need to cut about $4.5 million more - or nearly $8 million from the initial proposed budget. The District would need to consider measures such as forgoing capital expenses for security infrastructure and cafeteria improvements, eliminating non-mandated transportation, reducing athletics and extracurricular activities, cutting staff positions, increasing class sizes and diminishing elective class offerings.
