Welcome to the Canistota School District

On behalf of the faculty and support staff, I would like to welcome you and your student to what we hope is a quality and productive educational experience at the Canistota School District.  As Principal, I am very excited about the many opportunities that our school district has to offer.  Our faculty and staff are a dedicated team of professionals that will do everything in their power “to prepare students to be successful in society by providing a high-quality education enriched with opportunities for all students.”

We work hard to provide a safe and challenging learning environment for all of our students. We want to ensure that all of our students have the opportunity to succeed.  We want to instill in our students a true pride in themselves, their school, and their community.  The Canistota School District offers a challenging curriculum and a variety of opportunities to excel in extracurricular activities.

If you have any questions about the Canistota School District, please feel free to contact me at your convenience.
