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.

The academic achievements of our students are recognized throughout New York State. In addition to the academic offerings, our students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of sports on the interscholastic and intramural levels. In an effort to continue the total development of all students, there are many co-curricular activities for students of all ability levels. Our goal is to provide what each student requires to become all that he/she is capable of becoming.
