White Plains, New York is the county seat of Westchester County, located just half an hour north of New York City. The city and county are both affluent and suburban in nature, with many tree-lined streets and quiet neighborhoods, but also with quick access to the bright lights of Manhattan and the rest of New York City. A very popular local attraction is the White Plains Farmer's Market, which operates year-round and provides locally grown produce.1 For a blast to the past, visit the White Plains Armory building, which is where the very first public reading of the Declaration of Independence occurred in New York on July 11, 1776. White Plains is also famous for being the hometown of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

To promote an environment that is accepting of all people, the White Plains Public Schools have implemented a comprehensive anti-bullying policy. The district's Code of Conduct outlines behaviors that are strictly prohibited, including those of a harassing or intimidating nature that are detrimental to a student's self-esteem and ability to learn. Instead, students are taught that respect, equality, and dignity are hallmarks of a responsible and caring citizen. Any questions about this policy can be answered by calling 914-422-2000.4

Current Education

Students who function better in a small classroom environment with more unstructured learning time can attend Rochambeau Alternative High School. Students in the program engage in the study of core subjects such as language arts and math, but they are also allowed and encouraged to undertake non-traditional learning as well. For some students this means taking classes at local colleges, while for others it means getting involved in a work-study program at a local business. The Community School Program also encourages students to get out into the city to find learning opportunities that advance their knowledge and skills. Additional details are available by calling 914-422-2420.5
