Located in Westchester County, New York, Hastings High School is the sole high school of Hastings-on-Hudson, a suburban village of approximately 8,000 residents located 15 miles north of Manhattan. With approximately 500 students and a faculty and staff of 58 for grades 9-12, the size of the school enables us to establish a sense of community and caring. Through careful planning, we utilize our resources to produce a wide-ranging program of rigorous academics and a rich suite of extracurricular activities that extends the school day. Our students see the school as central to their lives, a gathering place to learn, to socialize, to form friendships, and to discover themselves and the world in which they are growing up.
As home to a diverse collection of learners, the school believes that all students can learn. It is the district's responsibility to prepare students with the knowledge, understanding, skills, and strategies they need to be productive, responsible citizens in a democratic society. Hastings High School provides a rigorous core academic program, 15 advanced placement courses, an honors program and a vast selection of elective courses. Annually, students are selected as All-County musicians and All-Section athletes. In addition, many gain recognition for their contributions to the visual arts. Hastings High School is large enough to offer a rich and varied curriculum and small enough to know and care about each student.
