About Pieter B. Coeymans

The Pieter B. Coeymans Elementary School is part of the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District. The school is located in Upstate New York’s Capital District area within walking distance to the Hudson River.  The building is a Universal Pre-Kindergarten to grade 5 building with approximately 480 students.  In grades K-5 we generally organize on a graded basis, with about 4 sections at each grade level, but we recognize the range of abilities and achievement levels within each class.

We take pride in offering varied and exciting programs in academic and special subject areas, as well as providing support for students through supplemental services.   Although students are assigned to particular classroom teachers each year, all children are viewed as important individual members of the entire school and, thus, the responsibility of all staff.  As we work with your child each day, you will find that this is a responsibility we take seriously and with great joy.

The Pieter B. Coeymans motto is “A Place to Learn and Grow.”
