North Syracuse Central School District

The North Syracuse Central School District embraces the best of both worlds—as the largest suburban school district in Onondaga County it has all the advantages of a large district but with a small community feel. The District serves the towns of Clay, Cicero, Salina and the village of North Syracuse as one community: NorthStar Nation.

At North Syracuse, we are proud to offer expanded educational offerings to meet the unique needs and interests of our student population. Our dynamic programming aims to prepare students for the real world through diverse experiences and exceptional extracurricular, athletics and fine arts opportunities.

Our students begin their academic careers in preschool, or in one of six “neighborhood” elementary schools, to build a strong foundation for future success. Two middle schools allow students to experience gradual introductions to secondary education and provide options to nurture the passions they began forming in elementary school. All NSCSD students are brought together as North Syracuse Junior High School students and continue on to Cicero-North Syracuse High School.

Through school and district events our families come together, with local organizations and businesses proudly supporting our students and staff. Building strong relationships and partnerships with local businesses allows us to work together to make our school community a better place.

Our proximity to easily accessible highways provides four seasons of access to a wide variety of activities such as hiking, biking, boating, skiing, shopping and enjoying local foods and beverages across the Central New York region.
