About Us

The Stillwater Central School District serves approximately 1,200 students in Universal Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade. The district consists of two school buildings: Stillwater Elementary School, which serves students in UPK-grade 5, and Stillwater Middle School/High School, which serves students in grades 6-8 (MS) and grades 9-12 (HS).

A small school atmosphere, individual attention, and community support are just some of the things that make Stillwater unique. The district is proud to provide students with a strong academic program in core subjects, as well as offer accelerated courses, distance learning courses, and a variety of electives, such as art and music.

In addition to the traditional academic courses, the district offers sports programs across three seasons, as well as offering a wide range of clubs and extra-curricular activities.
