History[edit]

Ardsley High School front entrance

From the years 1920–1935, the population in Ardsley doubled; therefore an addition was added 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.
