Commonly referred to as “Mark Twain Country,” Chemung County sits on the southern border of New York State and contains Elmira, the city that Twain called home for many years. With its beautiful rolling hills and small town appeal, you can often find a great farmer’s market or festival, or even take in the Chemung County Fair. Home to the famous Watkins Glen Raceway and the Corning Museum of Glass, Chemung County also hosts dozens of cutting-edge schools. With smaller class sizes and many extracurricular options, the schools prepare children with the means to live and thrive in an ever-changing world. The small town feel of Chemung County gives it a charm that is noticeable in its schools, communities and neighborhoods.
