Pierre Van Cortlandt Middle School
3 Glen Place, Croton-on-Hudson, NY 10520
Pierre Van Cortlandt Middle School (PVC) serves students in grades five through eight in a supportive, caring, family-like atmosphere. It is structured to meet the developmental needs of students at different grade levels. In fifth and sixth grades, classes are taught by two teachers: one for math and science, and one for the humanities. In seventh and eighth grades, students are taught by a team of teachers specializing in math, science, English, social studies and special education. In addition, students take Chinese, Spanish or French beginning in fifth grade and have access to the school’s Innovation and Design Lab where they can explore
engineering principles. Eighth-graders take a high school level science course in Living Environment, and may take Algebra 1, which can lead to high school credit. Students also participate in art, general music, physical education, home and career skills, media and communications and health and may participate in chorus, band and strings. An advisory program supports the social and emotional wellness of students, and a research-based bullying prevention program helps to maintain a welcoming environment for all.
