Tri-Valley Central School District
The Tri-Valley Central School District is the heart of the Tri-Valley community that surrounds the school campus. The first school in the area was taught by Revolutionary War soldier, Christopher Darrow. As the area’s population increased, each hamlet located in the hills and valleys of the southern Catskill Mountains, provided a schoolhouse for their children. On June 10, 1946, multiple schoolhouses consolidated into a Union Free District. In 1958, Tri-Valley became a Central School District. Continuing growth in program and student numbers have required several additions to the 1951 building that faces Route 55 in Grahamsville, NY.
The present building is a unique K-12 facility located on one campus. The campus is comprised of the K-12 school, the Iatauro Sports Complex which includes a track and field, a separate administration building, a maintenance building, a state-of-the-art theatre which seats over 1,000 people, and two greenhouses. The District’s technology capacity connects students and teachers with considerable resources and opportunities within and beyond the school walls.
Through the years, Tri-Valley has benefited from the work of many Board of Education members, administrators, faculty and staff. Strong community support for ‘their’ school is a hallmark of the district. Students participate in a wide range of extracurricular and athletic events while participating in a curriculum that is unusually broad for a school of its size.
