Minisink Valley Central School District is located at 2320 Route 6 Middletown, NY and it serves grades K-12 in Orange County. The district offers a strong academic program in its five school buildings: two elementary schools, one intermediate school, one middle school, and one high school. In keeping with our emphasis on individual needs and the development of the whole child, the educational program is supported by academic intervention services, the celebration of artistic and musical talents of children, an impressive athletic and extracurricular program, and a focus on developing children ethically and emotionally as well as intellectually.
Historically, the first schools located within what is now the Minisink Valley Central School District were small one and two room schoolhouses in local districts serving students in the immediate surrounding areas. When New York State moved to centralize many of these smaller districts it appeared that students in the Towns of Greenville, Minisink and much of Wawayanda would be annexed to Middletown, Goshen or Port Jervis. Area residents opposed to annexation worked on an alternate plan to save their local schools, even traveling to Albany for a two day centralization study with State Education Department officials.
It appeared that twenty-one districts within the Townships of Greenville, Minisink and Wawayanda would be involved with the vote on school centralization, but only twenty districts participated. The week before the vote Wawayanda's District Two consolidated with the City of Middletown. There was much to celebrate on June 30, 1955 when residents of those twenty districts approved the centralization plan by a nearly three to one margin. The vote was held at the Johnson Fire House. That very night voters present when results were counted elected the first Board of Education: Greenville - Harold Geiger, Francis Remey, Robert Runnalls; Minisink - Arthur Brown, Warren Ford, Richard Hansen; Wawayanda - Richard Hall, Josephine Horan, and J.J.Schmid.
