Tappan Zee Elementary (TZE) is located in beautiful Piermont not far from the banks of the Hudson River. For the 2014 -2015 school year, TZE will be the home for third grade students in the South Orangetown Central School District.

Our child centered theme at TZE is Every Student, Every Day. Each student is special and it is our goal to help students reach their fullest potential. We are fortunate to have an excellent teaching staff and a full complement of educational specialists and support staff to assist students in meeting this goal. TZE students participate in art, music and physical education learning activities. They have access to a wonderful library that has books to meet their reading interests and information resources for their research needs. A major goal of the district and our school is to provide students with skills for the 21st century. In addition to the cooperative learning opportunities for students, our technology specialist works with students and teachers with the application of technology in the classroom. For example, staff and students are provided with support to create and participate in blogs, conduct internet research, participate in videoconferencing and film original videos. They also learn about using the internet in a safe way. Each classroom is equipped with a smart board and three computers. We have two computer labs which are available for all teachers and students. Our special education teachers, school psychologist, speech/language therapist, occupational and physical therapists and learning consultant support students with special needs. We also provide specialized instruction for students in the gifted/talented program and for children with limited English speaking abilities. Our secretarial staff, school nurse and custodians support the entire TZE community. TZE is truly A Place Where Everybody Cares.
