Friday, September 12, 2014 update

Dear Residents,

I am pleased to update you on the following conversations with County Executive Mangano and Police Commissioner Krumpter. I have been informed that commencing tomorrow (9/12), a police officer will be stationed at the corner of Glen Cove Avenue and Kissam Lane from 7:30-8:15 a.m. and from 2:40-3:15 p.m. This assignment will continue throughout the duration of a traffic study when the County will commence to determine what additional steps they might take to help insure the safety of our students.  

I am also very pleased to report that the student who was injured in the accident is scheduled to be released from the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery. Please know how much I value all of the input and suggestions that I have received from those who have contacted me.  Having worked in the North Shore Schools community for 28 years, I am continuously impressed with the compassion, spirit, and support that is offered during these difficult moments.

Ed Melnick
Superintendent of Schools
North Shore Central School District

Welcome To North Shore Schools







The North Shore School District is a dynamic educational community made up of five public schools which serve a rich mix of students whose academic performance is consistently high and enables us to maintain a position as one of the strongest public school systems in the Nation. Our district includes Glen Head Elementary School, Glenwood Landing Elementary School, Sea Cliff Elementary School, North Shore Middle School and North Shore High School.

We remain resolute in our commitment to providing our students with an education in an environment that places an emphasis on knowing each child well. Additionally, we will continue evolving as a community of learners in which each participant is supported in becoming passionately engaged in a process of continuous growth and improvement.

Together with our Trustees and consistent with our mission and vision statements, we will continue to develop and support those facets of the North Shore Schools that place an emphasis on learning that is deep and meaningful. In addition, providing the best possible education at the most reasonable cost possible is a goal we all share.

If you have any questions, please contact me by phone at (516) 277-7801 or via e-mail at melnicke@northshoreschools.org.

Sincerely yours,
Dr. Edward Melnick


Mission Statement

Our mission is to nurture and enrich our students' natural delight in learning and in the powers of mind and body. Each child's awakening into confident young adulthood requires guided engagement with vital ideas and events of the past to realize fresh possibilities and discoveries for the future.

We aspire to foster in our students those qualities of character consonant with the ideals of a democratic society. We are committed to reaching beyond routine expectations in a learning environment that encourages inquiry and builds its daily practice upon respect for oneself and others.
