Life in the Village of Lancaster is based on the idea of community. This idea was at the center of the rehabilitation of Central Avenue. Within this community there is a top notch school district, several private school options and a variety of choices for churches, and four unique parks.
   

The Lancaster Central School District takes great pride in not only the quality of educational, athletic and extra-curricular programming, but also the strong sense of community involvement with the schools. Boasting five elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and a high school that offers many state-of-the art and awarding winning programs, the school district is committed to creating the best possible learning environment for the students.
