Welcome to the Pawling Central School District!

It is my great honor to lead our school district, with the guidance of our dedicated Board of Education, the commitment of our staff, and the support and collaboration of our families and community.  Pawling is truly a special place. Our charming and beautiful school district is nestled in the beautiful Harlem River Valley, not much more than one hour from everything New York City has to offer and bisected by the storied Appalachian Trail.  Our community is rich in history and culture from its first indigenous peoples to those it welcomes today from all over the world. Our students engage in rigorous academics, innovative personalized learning, community and civic engagement and enjoy an impressive selection of opportunities across athletics and the arts.  The Pawling Central School District truly does offer small size and diverse opportunities.  Feel free to reach out to me, or any member of our staff, so we can share more with you about the opportunities for you and your family here in the Pawling schools.

With Pride and Gratitude,

Kim Fontana
