Welcome to Ramsey!
We empower students to become autonomous learners who will continue to recognize and solve problems throughout their lives. Building upon a foundation of content mastery, we intentionally focus on 10 competencies that are made explicit in our Profile of a Ramsey Graduate. These essential, real-world skills will prepare today's students to tackle tomorrow's challenges in higher education and the workforce.
OVERVIEW OF OUR SCHOOLS
Welcome the Ramsey Public Schools! Ramsey is a suburban community of 14,600 residents, located twenty miles northwest of New York City. Our school system has a well-earned reputation for excellence and has garnered recognition at the county, state and national levels. Ramsey's 2,700+ students are educated in two K-3 schools, one 4-5 upper elementary school, a middle school for grades 6-8 and a 9-12 high school. In addition to serving the residents of Ramsey, the District educates the students of Saddle River in grades 6-12 through a send-receive relationship.
The single most important role of our district is to empower students to become autonomous learners who will continue to recognize and solve problems throughout their lives. Over the past decade, the school community has engaged in a self-reflective re-thinking of education, focusing on the skills and dispositions needed to meet the demands of a complex, global society of the 21st Century. The results of this self-reflection culminated in the Profile of a Ramsey Graduate, which makes explicit the competencies we strive to foster in our students. To foster these essential real-world skills, the school district has designed multiple opportunities for students to practice the application and transfer of content and skills in authentic settings.
