Welcome to the home of the 4th and 5th grade students of the Indian River Central School District. At the Intermediate School we strive to provide a quality education facilitated by highly qualified teachers and support staff. Our school of nearly 700 students is nestled in the quaint countryside of Jefferson County. Our goal is to support and encourage each child in achieving his/her optimum potential by instilling in them an intrinsic sense of worth, curiosity and love of learning.
The Intermediate School is fortunate to have a partnership with the Fort Drum Army Installation. One of the many wonderful aspects of our school is that we are home to the children of the brave men and women of the United States Army - 10th Mountain Division. It is the diversity and wealth of life experience that our students bring that makes our school shine. We are proud to have the military as part of our school community.
The Intermediate School understands the importance of creating a school climate that allows our children to feel valued and safe. To this end we place a great deal of our focus on developing children with good character. A primary goal of our school is to teach our children what it means to be a person of compassion, acceptance, and respect. Throughout the year we will place emphasis in our curriculum of including valuable character traits (Trustworthiness, Fairness, Respect, Responsibility, Caring, Citizenship, Anti-Bullying). We also feel it is important to highlight the outstanding character that our students demonstrate throughout the year through recognition on our "Wall of Characters." We look forward to partnering with home on this initiative as we work to raise emotionally balanced, socially compassionate, and caring individuals.
We are committed to the success of our school and more importantly our children. Please consider us more than a school, we operate our school with a family like environment and feel. We want our students, families, and visitors to feel welcome and at home. We invite and encourage parent and community involvement so please feel free to call or stop in the office.
