|Brocton Central School District |
Secretary / District Clerk
Brocton Central School is in the heart of its community—both by location and support.
Each school day, more than 500 students enter the school building in pursuit of their educational aspirations, with more than 80 percent of graduates enrolling in higher education.
Experienced and highly qualified teachers are the heart of the pre-k through 12th grade educational program at Brocton Central School.
A $21.5 million capital project, completed in 2005, renovated and added additional educational areas throughout the District. In total, the project created 16 new classrooms, a distance learning laboratory and state-of-the art science laboratories.
The project also enhanced athletic programs by adding a new gymnasium and renovating existing athletic facilities, while significant alternations were made throughout the building to enhance accessibility
The architects of the recent capital project have been recognized nationally for innovative design and execution in meshing the historic character of the school with completely modern and state-of-the art classrooms and learning laboratories.
The District also maintains its own cafeteria operation as well as its transportation fleet.
