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.

  • NRHS Offices Move to House 4 Temporarily; Most Summer School Classes at ALMS

    Administrative offices and most operations at New Rochelle High School have been moved to House 4 until late July while crews ramp up construction and replace electrical switchgear equipment in other areas of the building.

    Most NRHS summer school classes have been moved to Albert Leonard Middle School at 25 Gerada Lane. There will be shuttle bus service from NRHS to ALMS for summer school classes.  The buses will leave from North Avenue by the Huguenot Children's Library (near Eastchester Road) on the following schedule: 8:00, 10:00 and 12:00. Buses will leave ALMS at 10:30, 12:30 and 2:30, returning to North Avenue.

    Other NRHS business, including picking up transcripts, will take place in House 4, where internet service and phone lines have been re-routed.

    House 4 will also be the temporary home of the District’s re-registration process, which begins this summer with incoming ninth-graders.

    Power was turned off in most of the building on June 26 to allow crews to replace the equipment. The work is part of Phase II of the $106.5 million bond project approved by voters in 2016. The $46 million phase is on course to be completed later this year.

    Access to House 4 is off North and Braemar avenues or from the end of Flandreau Avenue. The building’s main entrance at 265 Clove Road is temporarily closed to the staff and the general public.

    The NRHS administrative office can still be reached at (914) 576-4500.

    For questions on the construction, contact Director of Facilities Carl Thurnau,, (914) 576-4222.

  • Congratulations, Class of 2018!

    The New Rochelle High School Class of 2018 graduated Thursday afternoon in a commencement ceremony filled with advice, encouragement and challenges for the students to be the best that they can be.

    “I call on the Class of 2018 to find a path that each of you finds genuinely purposeful,” valedictorian Elijah Pomerantz said to the sea of 670 fellow purple-robed seniors on the high school’s McKenna Field. “Standing on the precipice of adulthood, we all have to decide what this next chapter of our lives will bring. Whether we are heading off to college, to work or to serve our nation, we are all poised to begin our adult years auspiciously.”

    An incoming member of Princeton University’s freshman class, Pomerantz was one of 15 graduating seniors who will attend Ivy League colleges in the fall. The class completed a sweep of the prestigious schools, sending at least one student to each of the eight ivies – including eight students to Cornell University alone.

    Pomerantz and salutatorian Randall St. Louis remarked on the wide range of passions and skills exhibited by the class.

    “As I look out at this crowd in front of me,” said St. Louis, who will attend Harvard University, “I see future scientists who have grown out of the Science Research Program, future athletes who have started their careers with championships here, future artists and performers from the PAVE program who will soon be walking red carpets, future engineers who will take us deeper into the age of technology and future leaders who I hope to see on ballots later in life.”

    Class President Ever-Maat Mack challenged her fellow graduates and the families and friends present to think about “privilege and perspective.”

    “If you can’t understand where others are coming from, you can’t empathize,” she said. “We should strive to treat each other with a certain level of unconditional respect.”

    Principal Reginald Richardson said the seniors had faced challenges and had shown themselves to be “passionate, intelligent, articulate and resilient.”

    “Because of you, I am filled with hope and optimism for the future,” he said. “Because of you, I can see a world much better than the one we have today.”

    Board of Education Vice President Jeffrey Hastie also addressed the graduates, telling them that they have shown courage and kindness this year.

    “The most impressive takeaway for me is your sense of now,” Hastie said. “Now is your time to action. Now is your time to speak. Now is your time to do. You are not waiting your turn, asking for permission. Nor should you. You will shape your future and no one else. Such a conviction at any age is inspiring, but more so in the young.”

    Schools Superintendent Dr. Brian Osborne told the graduates that they are ready to shape, “even radically alter,” the world.

    “Graduates, whatever you do next, learn as much as you possibly can in every possible way,” he said. “Your education is not a place you attend or a class you take. It’s how you ultimately make sense of the world and your place in it. May you take the critical thinking and deeply held core values that are so embodied by New Rochelle, and bring all your joy, creativity and compassion to lead us to a better tomorrow.”

  • Voters Approve 2018-2019 School Budget

    Voters Approve 2018-2019 proposed budget for City School District of New Rochelle

    The $270,381,160 spending plan maintains existing programs, invests in social-emotional supports, safety and security measures, and adds teaching positions

    NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (June 19, 2018) Residents today approved the City School District of New Rochelle’s proposed $270,381,160 budget for the 2018-2019 school year that stays within the state tax cap. The plan preserves programming and includes funds for several positions and safety measures.

    The vote was 1,757 – 1,004. The results remain unofficial pending the counting of absentee ballots.

    The cap on the increase in the tax levy – the amount of money to be raised by property taxes – was 2.231 percent. The budget kept the increase to that level by cutting $3.4 million from the tax levy that was included in the $272.8 million budget that voters rejected in May.

    The tax levy in the now-approved budget is $209,002,162. That is an increase of $4,560,520 over the levy of $204,441,642 in the 2017-2018 budget.

    “This budget will serve the District well,” said Superintendent Dr. Brian Osborne. “By allocating resources responsibly, the budget preserves our programs, provides for necessary additions and also protects the fiscal health that we have worked so hard to improve in recent years.”

    The newly adopted budget carries an estimated tax rate of $785.72 per $1,000 of assessed value. That’s an increase of $21 per $1,000, or 2.75 percent. The current rate is $764.72 per $1,000. The tax bill for a home assessed at $16,000, the city average, will be an estimated $12,571.52, an increase of $335.95. Such a home has an estimated market value of $695,000.

    All necessary programs, faculty and staff positions currently in place for this school year are maintained in the proposed budget. It adds four school counselors at New Rochelle High School, one in each house. It also adds teaching positions to address pressing student needs. They include 2.1 English as a New Language teacher FTEs split among Albert Leonard Middle School, Isaac E. Young Middle School and William B. Ward Elementary School); three special education teachers (one each at New Rochelle High School, ALMS and IEYMS); and one special education teaching assistant and one special education aide (both at the high school).

    A sum of $200,000 is included for additional safety measures that have been recommended by the Task Force on Reducing Violence in the Lives of Children and Youth and that will be recommended in a security assessment being conducted by the global firm Guidepost Solutions.
