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
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
