Our School District
The Phoenix Central School District, in Central New York, is located 15 miles northwest of Syracuse and 18 miles southeast of Lake Ontario. Phoenix is primarily a rural community, situated at Lock 1 of the Oswego River and Oswego canal, making it the southern gateway to Oswego County. It is conveniently located near state Route 481, making it accessible to many fine parks, shopping facilities and restaurants.
The district serves nearly 1,850 students housed in three school buildings - Michael A. Maroun Elementary School houses grades K-4, Emerson J. Dillon Middle School houses grades 5-8 and John C. Birdlebough High School houses grades 9-12. Administrators and school faculty/staff are committed to a strong educational program that promotes academic and personal growth for all students.
Our district believes that each student will become a productive, responsible, confident individual with a strong academic foundation and the ability to make intelligent choices. Our staff and a close-knit community supportive of its students are our greatest asset in this endeavor.
