About Us

The Menands Union Free School District— better known as Menands School—serves approximately 300 students in pre-K through eighth grade. The school district pays tuition for an additional 130 Menands students in ninth through 12th grades to attend one of six area high schools: Shaker High School in North Colonie Central School District, Colonie Central High School (South Colonie), Watervliet High School, BOCES P-TECH at Watervliet, Heatly High School (Green Island), or Tech Valley High School. A small public school district that never centralized with other schools, Menands Union Free School District has been in existence for over 140 years and continues to be a focal point of our village community.
