Dear Ward families,
On behalf of the William B. Ward Elementary School community, I welcome you to our school. Thank you for visiting our website and taking the time to learn about Ward.  I would like to say how proud and impressed I am with our staff, students and families here.  Amazing things are happening at Ward every day, in the classrooms and beyond. 
I know that together we will continue to grow and improve upon our success so far.  As always, my door is open.  If you ever have a question or concern, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I can be reached via email at  fmiele@nredlearn.org.
Sincerely,
Franco J. Miele
Principal



William B. Ward Elementary School is located in New Rochelle, New York. A strong academic program not only stresses mastery of basic skills - reading, writing, and mathematics - but includes a comprehensive social studies program and an in-depth inquiry based science program. 

Ward School is a warm, positive, energetic and enthusiastic place where all children can reach their full potential as students academically, socially, and emotionally.  Diversity is one of our strengths.  Building upon this, Ward School strives to "produce responsible, self-sufficient citizens who possess the self-esteem, initiative, skills, and wisdom to continue individual growth, pursue knowledge, develop aesthetic sensibilities, and value cultural diversity by providing intellectually challenging educational programs".
