About Us

The first school in the area was taught by Revolutionary War soldier Christopher Darrow. As the area’s population increased each local hamlet provided a schoolhouse for their children. In  1946, multiple schoolhouses consolidated into a Union Free District. In 1958, Tri-Valley became a central school district.

The Tri-Valley school building is a  Pre-K-12 facility all on one campus, which also includes the Iatauro Sports Complex, an administration building, a maintenance building and two greenhouses.

Through the years, Tri-Valley has benefited from the work of many Board of Education members, administrators, faculty and staff.  Strong community support is a hallmark of the district.

Our Vision

Tri-Valley Central School is the foundation of our community.  We will continue to build a school community with deep roots that will enable our children to excel in a changing world and that will enable our staff to continue to grow professionally.  We will make available to our community a safe school facility that will be a place to support family activities through school activities and functions.  Our focus will support community values and our educational plan will produce global thinking students who will be effective communicators and lifelong learners.
