John Paulding School5

Wonderful public school. Definitely has a small, private school feel. All of the teachers are caring, and children of all academic abilities seem to thrive. The diversity is a boon - children are taught about the world they live in thanks to the environment that they're in. This school (and school district overall) is a hidden gem. We are so happy we moved here.
Wonderful school for my daughter. Excellent resources, dedicated instructors, varied curriculum (including arts, music, sign language), and a cute "small school" environment. Private school education for a public school price!
John Paulding is a very good school, with a lot of diversity. the Principal is very good also the superintendent. However the tarrytown bus transportation is a nightmare....we moved out from that town because of that.
The Tarrytown school district is large and has significant resources for students. Class size is reasonable at 20 - 22 students. Teachers are dedicated and work well with parents. Tarrytown has a large hispanic population and a large portion of their resources go towards getting non-english speaking students up to speed. A recent 100 million dollar bond was passed that will upgrade the aging high school and elementary schools.
