Does anyone have any familiarity with the Greenburgh-Graham school district? It seems as if their schools are located in Hastings-on-Hudson, but there is also a separate Hastings-on-Hudson school district? Do they overlap? Where do students living in Hastings on Hudson go?

Thanks!

Hello again. Please allow me to modify my above question. Apparently the Greenburgh-Graham school district is intended for "at risk" youth that are referred to the schools, and it is not a general purpose school district for Hastings. So my modified question is, how are relations between the Hastings community and Greenburgh-Graham? Do the Greenburgh-Graham students visit Hastings on their lunch break? After hours? Or do they primarily remain on the school campus? If they do visit, have relations been cordial? Do the Hastings schools and the Greenburgh-Graham schools share any resources or classes/programs? Thanks so much!

Default School District and Towns have little to do with one another

At least, in terms of boundaries. The two are different governmental entities, with separate taxing authority and were created at different times. Their boundaries rarely make sense when looking at a map, but need historical context to make sense.

comlicating things even more is when a town like Greenburgh has within its boundaries a sub-governmental entity like "Hastings" which is not a town, but a villiage within a town. Hastings is part of the town of Greenberg, but as a villiage has a school district. Of course not all of the village is in the Hastings district and some in the district are outside the village.

Hastings school district has Hillside Elementary, Farragut Middle School, and Hastings High School.
Greenburgh-Graham has Ziccolella elementary/middle school and MLK High School but is a scpecial district for certain students with certain needs.

The Greenburgh schools with the 6 villages and the various hamlets and unincorporated zones is one of the most frustrating things to understand. I have been living and working here for a long time and I do not truly understand where a home fits without a lot of investigation. All I can tell you is that a good realtor can help and really earn that commish with saving you work on any place you are looking.

I have never heard of a safety concern.
