Does anyone know of Elementary Schools in Westchester that do not have any staircases? I am basically looking for a school that is all on one level. My daughter is disabled but does not need a wheelchair and stairs are a big issue.

Pleasantville schools do have stairs, but we had several kids with physical disabilities there when I was in school (muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, etc.), and they had aides to help them get around. The middle school actually built a elevator to accommodate the boy with muscular dystrophy after he became wheelchair bound, but I don't know whether the elementary school has an elevator since they have knocked down and rebuilt it since I attended it. I know your question was stairs though, and all three schools do have stairs.

Tuckahoe - which is actually Cottle Elementary (part of TUFSD). Although the middle and high schools do have stairs.

French Hill (Yorktown district) is technically on one level and there's a ramp for the "lower level" (like, three feet below the "upper" level, it's hard to explain). I don't know about any of the middle schools, but I do know that the high school has an elevator (you need permission to use it though). About half of the classes are upstairs however.

I'm a high school student at John Jay High School (Katonah Lewisboro) and though I don't know about the elementary schools, the high school only has a couple major staircases, and there's an elevator for both. There are a lot of ramps.

(I know you didn't ask, but in terms of education Katonah/Lewisboro is definitely superior, so that's something to consider.)
