Our District and School

Since 1966, The Oysterponds Elementary School has been serving the communities of Orient and East Marion on the North Fork of Long Island New York in providing a pre-kindergarten through sixth grade educational program for an average of 85 to 95 students each year. As a District, we are responsible for the education of students in grades 7 through 12 at the nearby Greenport Union Free School District.

We are a unique community of learners, intent upon both academic excellence and the development of social skills necessary for successful living in a global society. Our goal is to focus on the individual student through the collaboration of teachers, students and parents to construct a Personal Learning Plan, recognizing each student as a whole person, and to help him or her achieve their personal best by understanding how they learn.
