The Aquebogue School is one of four elementary (K-4) buildings in the Riverhead Central School District. It is a child-centered school that now serves approximately 517 students. While the original building is old (the cornerstone reads 1929), it has been well-maintained. Several recent updates include: a new wing and cafeteria, new roofing, new sidewalks, new parking and asphalt, new kitchen, new computers, refurbished library, new flooring, extensive refinishing and repainting.
A dedicated, experienced staff maintains high expectations for all students. A caring community represented by the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), the Site Based Management Team (SBMT), and numerous other volunteers play an active role in the success of our school. Our students perform well on a variety of formal and informal assessments, and our school has been regularly recognized as a Suffolk County Reading Council Honor School.
Teachers work diligently to carefully blend the best practices of teacher-directed and student-centered instruction in their classrooms. Reading specialists coordinate the reading program and our remedial reading services. Preschool, special education and resource room, and ESL classes are also available. Our nurse, speech therapist, part-time psychologist, social worker, and occupational and physical therapists provide additional support for our students.
