• Welcome to Pound Ridge Elementary School

    Welcome to our school website!  Our website will provide you with information about our school, our programs, and resources that will help you to understand how we approach teaching and learning at Pound Ridge Elementary School.  PRES is one of the five Kindergarten-Fifth grade elementary schools in the Bedford Central School District.  PRES is located in the picturesque hamlet of Pound Ridge.  We provide our students with a strong sense of community by building upon our annual traditions, robust academic programs, and focus on our students’ individual needs. Our faculty and staff are dedicated educators who support the whole child by addressing each child’s talents, strengths, and needs.  

    We inspire our students to live the C.A.R.E. values as they are cognitively engaged in 21st century learning.  Our C.A.R.E. motto teaches our students the value of Cooperation, Accountability, Respect, and Effort.  Students have ample opportunities to build a common language through shared experiences at monthly assemblies, classroom discussions, and community building activities.  

    The PRES PTA and parent volunteers are instrumental in building our strong sense of community.  Our PTA enriches our student experience through special programming, author visits, book fairs and family events.  Parents are our partners in the journey of their child’s elementary school experience.  Please visit the PTA link to learn more about how to get involved in the PTA.
