Kennedy, one intermediate school – C.V. Starr, one middle school – Henry H. Wells, and one high school – Brewster High. Brewster has earned a reputation as a nationally recognized, high performing school system with students who consistently perform at or above the levels of districts with similar demographic and economic profiles.
Strategic Coherence Plan 2016 – 2021: Mission, Focus and Constancy of Purpose
In November 2015, the Brewster Central School District convened a Strategic Coherence Planning team consisting of key staff members, Board of Education members, and a diverse group of community representatives to create a Strategic Coherence Plan that will ensure that all Brewster students graduate ready to solve problems, communicate and collaborate effectively and think critically, they need to be taught in ways that support those skills and that all students and adults in the system need to be accountable for those performances.
