Monroe-Woodbury Central School District
We are committed to academic achievement and success for all students in a safe environment.
In partnership with families and our community, our mission is to promote confidence, inspire a passion for learning, and to prepare our students to become responsible global citizens.
The Monroe-Woodbury Central School District endeavors to become an acknowledged academic leader in New York State.
The Monroe-Woodbury Central School District is located approximately 45 miles north of New York City and geographically includes the towns of Monroe, Harriman, most of Woodbury and parts of Tuxedo, Chester and Blooming Grove.
The Monroe-Woodbury School District serves a population of approximately 36,585 people with 65% employed outside the area. Its unique location in the “Lake Region” of Southern Orange County at the foothills of the Catskill Mountains offers the charm of a clean suburban/rural countryside within easy driving distance of New York City. The community has traditionally offered outstanding support for the school district. Quality education is a major community priority.
Woodbury Parks & Recreation
The Town of Woodbury is proud to provide two beautiful swimming and recreational facilities to the residents of the town. Along with a small park in Highland Mills, there are the two major recreational areas: the Central Valley Pond, and Earl Reservoir in Highland Mills. There are several baseball and soccer fields, tennis courts, and a roller hockey rink.
The Woodbury Parks and Recreation Department is comprised of a 7-member Commission which manages the operation of the parks system. The Commissioners, who are appointed by the Town Board, serve a seven year term and volunteer their time. A full-time Recreation Supervisor plans the activities within the parks. The Administrative Assistant assists the Supervisor.
The Parks Department also employs many young town residents during the summer to work as Lifeguards, Camp Counselors, and Arts & Crafts Instructors. Other activities offered throughout the year include bus trips to plays, holiday parties, and a summer concert series.
