In 1954, 61 one- and two-room schoolhouses or separate school districts were combined to create what is now known as the Corning-Painted Post Area School District. Today, more than 5,600 students in grades Pre-K through 12 attend District schools.
Located in the scenic Southern Tier of New York State, our District is steeped in a strong sense of history and pride. This history of excellence and innovation is evident today, as we prepare a diverse student population to succeed in the 21st century.
The school archive is located in the District's Administrative Office Building. Data and material relate to the origin and history of Corning-Painted Post schools from the early 1800s, with emphasis on the decade prior to and the decade following the 1954 consolidation.
The school archive is available for use by the public. To donate materials to the collection, please call 936-3704, ext. 1042.
