Education in Victor

Victor Central School District

Victor Central School District

Victor’s schools occupy a unique hilltop campus convenient to the village and surrounding neighborhoods. All five schools – Victor Early Childhood Education Center, Victor Primary, Victor Intermediate, Victor Junior High and Victor Senior High School – share one location with extensive playing fields, track, pool, theater and a common campus road system. The total student body in 2006 topped 3,756. Academically, Victor ranks high in New York State, with extensive AP course offerings, International Baccalaureate status in the high school and learning options that include multi-age course offerings.

Victor’s junior high

Class size is modest in kindergarten through sixth grade with between 20 and 25 students, while Victor’s junior high and high schools range between 25 and 30 students. In 2006, 198 of Victor’s 223 seniors went on to attend college. Mean SAT scores for the class were 548 in reading and 572 in math. The school supports music programs including a jazz band, orchestra, marching band and string instrument program, serving hundreds of students. Art and theater programs are extensive and ambitious. Victor has been particularly strong in mathematics, science offerings and modern language instruction, including French and Spanish. Many students attend Victor schools from nearby Farmington. Economies of scale and extracurricular resources reflect a much larger suburban school district in both the value passed onto families and the diversity of academic offerings. Junior high and high schools occupy the same building, making accelerated course offerings to junior high students easy to achieve. School true value tax rate in 2006-2007 for the school district was 18.32, which is one of the lowest in Monroe and Ontario Counties.

Christian schools

For those seeking private education, Rochester is home to several excellent schools, and Christian schools are located in nearby Farmington and Lima. Also, several pre-schools and day care facilities are conveniently located in the village and around the town, with after-school programs available as well.

Those interested in continuing their education should know that community colleges, state and private universities in the county and nearby Rochester are all within an easy commute.
