Superintendent's Welcome

  • Who We Are

    The Patchogue-Medford School District is a school district that focuses on the (PEAS) physical, emotional, academic and social aspects of a (w)holistic education. We are reinventing the education system by bringing together our educational staff with parents and students, inspiring each to discover their talents and maximize their potential. We believe all children deserve 40 minutes of recess, unstructured play, mindfulness/yoga and the ability to delve deeply into divergent thinking opportunities through hands-on experiences.

    Serving over 7,800 students from pre-kindergarten through high school in 11 schools from both the Patchogue and Medford communities…we are one of the largest and most diverse school systems on Long Island.
