Public schools[edit]

North Amityville is served by three different public school districts, and the borders are not well-defined (they do not always follow roads). Close to half of the CDP is within the Copiague Union Free School District, a slightly smaller portion is within the Amityville Union Free School District, and an even smaller portion is within the Farmingdale Union Free School District.

West of Bayview Avenue (from Sunrise Highway to Albany Avenue), northwest of Albany Avenue (from Bayview to just past Rainbow Lane), south of an imaginary border that stretches from Albany Avenue to Johnson Street, west of another unclear border that cross the properties between Johnson Street, Dubois Avenue, Columbus Boulevard, and Great Neck Road, and southwest of Great Neck Road (from Colombus Boulevard to the Southern State Parkway), is within the Amityville Union Free School District.

Northeast of Great Neck Road (from Columbus Boulevard to the Southern State Parkway) and west of an imaginary line that stretches from the northeastern corner of the Columbus Boulevard/Great Neck Road intersection to the Southern State parkway just west of Cedar Road, is within the Farmingdale Union Free School District. Almost all North Amityville elementary students in the Farmingdale School District go to Woodward Parkway Elementary School, very few go to Saltzman East Memorial.

The rest of the North Amityville is within the Copiague Union Free School District.

Even though North Amityville students make up a large portion of the Amityville and Copiague School Districts' student bodies (possibly more than half of Amityville's), there is only one public school that is entirely located in North Amityville: Northeast School, serving Pre-K and Kindergarten in the Amityville School District. Edmund W. Miles Middle School, which serves 7th, 8th, and 9th grade in the Amityville School District, straddles the border between North Amityville and the village.

Transportation[edit]

North Amityville doesn't have any Long Island Railroad service, but it is served by several bus lines operated by Suffolk County Transit:[3]

  • S1: Amityville - Halesite
  • 1A: Amityville - North Amityville
  • S31: Copiague - Pinelawn
