About Us

Glens Falls City Schools provide K-12 public education for approximately 2,000 students living in the City of Glens Falls and part of the town of Queensbury within the Adirondack region of upstate New York.

Our small-city district covers approximately four square miles, and students walk to and from one of three neighborhood elementary schools, or the middle and high school, which are situated next-door to each other on Quade Street.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Glens Falls City School District is to provide a safe, positive and stimulating environment — one that fosters self growth, a passion for continuous learning, confidence and the ability to succeed in a changing world.

We promote excellence through high expectations and evolving standards for students, staff, parents and community. The challenge is to reach one’s personal best while respecting each person’s individuality.

We make it our responsibility to be accountable for the implementation of this mission and to model behaviors that are influential to the character as well as the mind.
