About Us

The Menands Union Free School District— better known as Menands School—serves approximately 300 students in kindergarten 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.
