Message from the Principal : David Johnson

Nyack Middle School serves approximately 660 students in grades 6 through 8. We strive to create an environment where all children learn, grow and become "better students and better citizens" who will contribute to this outstanding community. Nyack Middle School strives to prepare our students to lead in our ever-evolving world. We stress 21st-Century skills such as collaboration, communication, critical thinking, compassion, creativity, and cultural awareness.  The faculty and staff of Nyack Middle School hold the highest expectations of excellence from the students that we teach. We have an unwavering dedication to helping students achieve their goals and dreams.  

At Nyack Middle School, we are charged with developing the minds of the young people whom we teach.  We strive to instill character in our students that reflects the values of this great community. Our students learn to have empathy and responsibility towards each other. We will continue to promote Nyack Middle School P.R.I.D.E. by teaching our behavior expectations daily while also understanding that mistakes in behavior provide opportunities for learning and growth.  With this approach, we will have not only better students but also better citizens. 

We believe that our diversity is our greatest strength. We celebrate our differences and embrace the melting pot that this district and country embodies.

Parental involvement and communication are the foundation of any successful school. As a resident of this community and a parent of two students who attend Nyack Public Schools, I am deeply invested in the success of every student attending Nyack Middle School. Thank you for entrusting your children's education to the faculty and staff of Nyack Middle School. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns.

Welcome to our new Nurse, Susan Cech

 Susan Cech has worked as a nurse for the past 34 years, beginning her career as nurse’s aide in a local nursing home in upstate NY. She maintained her employment with the nursing home throughout her college career and continued to climb up the ladder to become a licensed practical nurse and eventually a graduate nurse once she completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from SUNY-Plattsburgh. She moved to NYC to gain more experience as a Registered Nurse, working at NYU Medical Center on a medical unit, then in management, and finally the Recovery Room and Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit. 

She decided to further her education in the grad school at NYU in the Nurse Practitioner Program where she graduated with honors. Her interest in cardiac surgery prompted her to work with heart surgeons at Beth Israel for five years before working at the  Heart Transplant program at Columbia University Medical Center for 17 years. During her tenure at CUMC, she had participated in a research study which provided a smooth transition for the pediatric heart recipients to the adult heart transplant program. Her enjoyment of teaching and mentoring others, including nursing students throughout her nursing career, has been rewarding in witnessing other nurse’s successful transition to their advanced practice roles.  

Aside from Susan’s outstanding work ethic and professionalism, she has compassion, is respectful, always willing to help others, and has a wonderful sense of humor. She has been a substitute nurse for the Nyack Schools for the past 3 years. This new chapter as the middle school nurse offers an exciting and rewarding journey in her career. 

Susan has lived in Rockland County for 18 years with her husband and two teenage sons. She enjoys family time, swimming in the ocean, and taking long walks with her dog.
