The Central New York area provides a diverse blend of urban, suburban and rural areas along with a wealth of educational, recreational and employment opportunities.
The District operates three school buildings, all of which are in excellent condition:

 Chester S. Driver Middle School - grades 4-8 with 600 students
Marcellus Senior High School - grades 9-12 with 500 students
Students in Marcellus score in the highest 5% of the students in New York on standardized achievement tests. Marcellus High School received excellent SAT scores  in 2018 with the verbal mean of 589 and a math mean of 610, with 57% of the senior class taking the exam.  The Class of 2018 had a 91% rate of achieving Regents diplomas or Regents with Advanced Designation, which places the high school in the "select company" of the most prestigious high schools in New York State. The class of 2019 also had two National Merit Finalists.
