About Our School District
The Geneseo School District presently enrolls approximately 900 students in grades K-12. The District encompasses 70 square miles. The school is housed in a well-maintained, modern campus consisting of three adjoining buildings and ample athletic facilities. The Elementary School includes grades K-5. The Middle School/High School houses grades 6-12. A beautiful new entryway and lobby were added in 2006 as part of a 9.9 million dollar renovation project. This project also provided a new middle/high school office, upgraded heating, ventilation and air conditioning, new lights, ceilings and floors; as well as the reconstruction and modernization of all of the high school science classrooms. The buildings and grounds contain a beautiful 600-seat auditorium, a fitness center, two gymnasiums, playing fields, a lighted stadium for football and soccer, an all-weather track, and a competition indoor pool.
The Geneseo Central School District has been a leader among the Genesee Valley schools in the area of instructional technology. Each classroom has a digital projector and most have an interactive whiteboard. There are four general use computer labs in the school along with a state-of-art computer-drafting classroom. The media centers also contain enough computers to accommodate an entire class for student research projects.
Along with a strong emphasis on the core subject areas, Geneseo Central offers foreign language classes to students in grades 6-12. The ESL, music, and visual arts departments provide all students with a strong background in the arts. The school community of Geneseo Central emphasizes caring for the whole child. The emotional and developmental growth of each child is provided for by a support team that includes three school counselors and two school psychologists. The connection and communication to school families is highlighted by a supportive and active Parent-Teacher-Student-Association (PTSA) and the involvement of parents and community members on school committees and booster clubs.
