The Ogdensburg City School District is located at 1100 State St., in the City of Ogdensburg, New York, which is located on the beautiful St. Lawrence River. The city is in St. Lawrence County in Upstate New York. The district is in close proximity to local universities and colleges such as St. Lawrence University, Clarkson University, SUNY Canton College and SUNY Potsdam College. We are also located in close proximity to areas such as Ottawa, Ontario (45 minutes away), Montreal, Quebec and Syracuse, New York City (2 hours away). We are considered a small city school district and have two elementary schools and a grade 7-12 complex. The Ogdensburg City School District serves approximately 1,800 students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12.

We encourage high academic excellence through integrated thematic educational experiences, enhanced by community collaboration to accommodate individual learning needs in heterogeneously grouped classrooms. We strive to develop self-actualized individuals who demonstrate high academic excellence, effective communication skills, critical thinking abilities, civic values and global awareness as we provide and support opportunities for life-long learning.

The Ogdensburg City School District will promote and support students as they explore and develop the skills needed to participate successfully in an ever-changing and diverse society striving to promote life-long learning and a variety of post-secondary education or training opportunities. Students are challenged to seek and become involved in educational opportunities which address their unique needs, interests, and strengths as involved and contributing citizens.

A graduate of the Ogdensburg City School District is expected to be an effective communicator, complex thinker and productive worker. These graduation standards are addressed in a fluid way throughout the pre-kindergarten through grade 12 curriculum.
