• Welcome to the Saugerties Central School District, a place where great things are always happening!

    It has been my pleasure to serve as your Superintendent since August 2009, and as a building administrator and teacher before that. My priorities as Superintendent have been, and continue to be:

    • Constant growth and improvement of our challenging academic program, which prepares students for college and careers
    • Creating the best possible learning environment by keeping each and every one of our students and staff safe on all five of our campuses
    • Preparing students for the future by increasing the use of 21st century technology in the classroom

    Our focus on these three goals has paid off. Just a few of the many achievements we as a community can be proud of:

    • Nearly half of the Class of 2017 graduated with an academic average of 85 or higher, and the class received a total of $400,000 in scholarships
    • For the second time in three years, a Saugerties student was the Valedictorian of the Ulster BOCES Career & Technical Center graduating class
    • One of our Junior High School students placed 9th among more than 100 participants in the Capital Region Spelling Bee this past spring
    • A Saugerties alumnus was recognized as National Teacher of the Year by the Council of Chief State School Officers 
    From the classroom to the playing fields to the music room and beyond, success is everywhere in Saugerties. 

    I invite you to use this website as a gateway to all the great things our students are doing. Please visit often and stay connected. 

    Thank you for your continued support of education in Saugerties.

    Seth Turner
    Superintendent of Schools
