Ardsley School is a public high school located in Ardsley, New York. The school was established in 1957 and serves students in grades 9–12. An extension was built onto the school and was completed in 2006. The school principal is Dr. James Haubner. The assistant principal is Rudy Arietta.
From the years 1920-1935, the population in Ardsley doubled; therefore an addition was added on to the 'old' high school in 1925. The addition included more classrooms and a gym. By the second population boom during the post World War II years, the Ardsley School District sought to build a new High School on the former Lewisohn Estate on Washington Hill, which burned to the ground in 1957. Ardsley High School opened its door to students for the 1957-1958 school year.
Ardsley High School runs on an 8 period schedule. Each period is 44 minutes long. There is a ninth period Tuesday through Thursday. This period is designated for students to seek extra help from their teachers. Attendance by students is not required during this period; however, teachers are required to be available. On Monday through Thursday the regular school day runs from 7:55 AM to 2:12 PM. On Friday school runs from 9:00 AM to 2:57 PM, except for certain band and chorus students who attend classes starting at 8:00 AM in the music wing. The school was built in 1957, and its first graduation class was 1958.
Missing SAT exams
On June 10, 2004, officials of the Ardsley school district notified police that 123 SAT answer booklets were stolen while awaiting shipment to the College Board for scoring. Ardsley High School had served as a testing location for the June 5, 2004, exam. On the morning of June 11, 2004, a man whose identity was never disclosed called the school to inform them that he had mistakenly taken the package. The answer booklets were returned, the package was reported to be completely intact, and therefore the tests were still eligible to be scored.
