Minisink Valley Elementary School is located at 2320 Route 6 Middletown, NY and it serves grades K-2 in Orange County. There are 10 sections of Kindergarten, 9 sections of 1st. grade, and 10 sections of 2nd Grade. Class size is approximately 25 at each grade level. There are about 81 full time and part time faculty and staff working at the Elementary School. In 1958, the entire school was K-12, with two divisions: K-6 on the right and 7-12 on the left. In the 1960's, a Middle School wing was added. In the 1970's, a separate High School was built.
A separate Middle School (6-8) was built in the 1990's and an Intermediate division was created. Today, the Elementary (K-2) still occupies the right side of the original building with the Intermediate (3-5) on the left.
For decades, our area had been primarily agricultural. The dairy farm was the livelihood of most of our residents. Milk, cheese, and winter ice fed a huge New York City appetite. In recent years, that type of life style has been rapidly declining. The many small dairy farms have given way to housing developments. Although our area is changing, there still remain a few dairy farms and some horse farms. We are a favorite relocation site for many New York Metropolitan transplants. For all the changes, it remains rural and a very pleasant place to live.
