Principal’s Message


Welcome to the Niton Central School website!  I am very excited to return as Principal for the 2022-23 school year.  It’s truly an honor to work with such wonderful students, dedicated staff, and engaged parents/guardians and community members.  It is our shared responsibility to develop our students into resilient citizens with a passion for lifelong learning.  I look forward to building collaborative and supportive relationships with all members of our community to achieve this.  


We are so pleased this year to welcome Miss Kennedy Carpenter and Mrs. Amanda Ford to our team.  At NCS, we know that small schools can make a big difference!  We offer a wide range of options in CTF and the Arts, in addition to strong core programming and are dedicated to providing a world class education to our students!  This includes a strong focus on Literacy and Numeracy development from Jr. K-9.


I hope each and every one of you has a successful year here at NCS, and I look forward to sharing it with you!

Mr. Steve Ripkens
