Dear Parents and Community Members,

Welcome to the web site of the Tioga Central School District! TCSD is a dynamic school district representing the great communities of Tioga, Barton, and Nichols. We are a district of approximately 1,000 students with an average annual 4-year graduation rate above 95%. We are dedicated to student achievement, and our K-12 academic results are among the top in the entire southern-tier region of New York State.  Both our Elementary School and High School are identified as academic "Recognition Schools" by New York State and our High School is a recipient of the 2019 National Blue Ribbon Award for outstanding academic achievement!

The Tioga Central School District is proud of its many accomplishments, including our powerful academic programs across all subjects, award winning athletic program, and wide range of extracurricular opportunities. At Tioga Central you will find wonderful parents and students, a dedicated school board, and teachers, staff and administrators who are highly skilled and enthusiastic about student learning. Our educational program integrates rigorous academics, school-to-career technical skills, visual and performing arts programs, state championship interscholastic athletic programs, and an extensive array of extra-curricular activities for students in elementary school to high school.

We are equally proud that these accomplishments have been attained through strong fiscal stewardship and one of the lowest school tax burdens in the region and the state. TCSD is engaged in ongoing improvements to our buildings and classrooms to provide our students with secure state-of-the-art classrooms and facilities. Tioga Central is grateful to have the support of many partners that provide community involvement opportunities, financial support and mentoring. 

All of us at Tioga Central have a shared commitment to provide the very best education possible for each and every child. I encourage you to take advantage of the many ways that you can become involved in keeping Tioga Central strong!
