Approximately 1400 students attend these schools that are served by 300 full-time and part-time faculty and staff members in a variety of positions. 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 500 students
Marcellus Senior High School - grades 9-12 with 450 students
Students in Marcellus score in the highest 5% of the students in New York on standardized achievement tests. Marcellus High School consistently receives excellent SAT scores with critical reading averages of 600 or more and math averages of over 600, with more than half the senior class taking the exam.  Graduating classes have approximately 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. Marcellus High School has had multiple National Merit Finalists in recent years.
