Pelham Public Schools or the Pelham Public School District, formally the Pelham Union Free School District, is a school district headquartered in Pelham, New York. It serves Pelham, which includes Pelham Manor and the Village of Pelham. As of 2016 the district had about 2,800 students.[1]

The City of New York pays the Pelham school district to provide educational services for a section of 35 houses in the Bronx located between Pelham and Pelham Bay Park and separated from the remainder of the borough; the city has done so since 1948 because the New York City school buses may not be insured if they leave the New York City limits, which they must do in order to reach this section of the Bronx, and because the bus trip would be very expensive. In 1997, five elementary school students and one high school student living in that section of the Bronx attended Pelham schools; New York City paid $15,892.86 each year for the high school student and $8,650.08 each year per elementary student.[2]
