Welcome to the Oneida City School District website.  Please use our website to garner information about our Board of Education, schools, teacher, instructional programming, athletics, music and many other programs.

The Oneida City School District is located in Oneida, NY, a small city in Madison County, located between Syracuse and Utica along the NYS thruway.  The district encompasses communities in Madison and Oneida Counties and is in close proximity to a number of colleges and universities, including Morrisville State College, Colgate University and Cazenovia College.

Our district has four neighborhood schools, a middle school that offers accelerated math and science courses and a high school with spacious athletic facilities, a vibrant arts and music program and extensive college level course offerings.  Our district is a leader in youth international relations through multiple foreign exchange programs, and we offer students a wide array of extracurricular activities.  Oneida students are offered a full range of programs offered through the Madison-Oneida BOCES Career and Technical Education Program, located in Verona.  BOCES services provide students with a wide variety of learning opportunities.  Our high school students have access to a variety of college credits through, RIT’s Project Lead the Way, Advanced Placement Courses and articulation agreements with Mohawk Valley Community College.

Our community is very supportive of our schools and our educational programs, and our teachers are involved, dedicated and student-oriented.  The non-profit Oneida City School District Foundation offers student scholarships and teacher grants to enhance our programs.  Our district’s Wall of Distinction recognizes each year outstanding graduates, retirees, and community members.

I invite you to visit our school district to see our students at their best.  I am sure that you will be impressed with our schools.
