Dear School Community Members and Visitors,
Welcome to Dansville Central Schools' website! We're very proud of our students and their accomplishments! We're grateful for our dedicated family of educators and support staff. We're committed to maintaining and growing unique learning experiences and programs. We embrace continuous renewal.
We've made a long term commitment to instilling leadership qualities in our students. We teach leadership through service learning and through the Leader in Me program. Recent examples of service learning in Dansville include the annual Trout Derby, the Fill the Bus campaign and Hoops for Hope. In each of these causes, our kids have given their time and creativity to improving the lives of others.
The Trout Derby and Hoops for Hope generated over $40,000 for our community hospital. Fill the Bus secured toys for local children and also for the children of Mendel Elementary School in Houston, TX. Their homes, school and community were devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Our students collected and purchased toys for all 350 children of Mendel ES and with our community partners, we were able to deliver the presents before the holidays.
Dansville students have benefitted from a mobile 1:1 computer learning environment for nearly 5 years. Computer literacy has evolved in Dansville and we have earned the distinction of "Common Sense Certified" schools. We recently expanded 1:1 learning opportunities to include children in grades PK-2. With our infusion of computer technology into all aspects of learning, we are better preparing students for postsecondary education, careers and entrepreneurship.
Rural communities in Western NY, the Southern Tier and the Finger Lakes regions face unique challenges. Dansville schools are rising above, meeting those challenges and overcoming them. We view our schools as essential to community renewal and prosperity and we're very serious about preparing our students to be leaders for today and tomorrow.
