About the Salmon River District:
The Salmon River Central School District is a small rural school district located in the northernmost reaches of New York State. Nestled in the foothills of the Adirondacks, on the shore of the Saint Lawrence, the district serves students from the towns of Fort Covington, Bombay, Brasher, Bangor and Westville as well as from the St. Regis Mohawk Reservation.

The Salmon River Central School District provides a public education to approximately 1,525 students.  Students are afforded a comprehensive educational program along with special services from the Board of Cooperative Educational Services of Franklin-Essex-Hamilton Counties.

Title VII and Johnson O'Malley provide educational enrichment programming for the Mohawk student population which comprises 63%  of the total school enrollment. The Salmon River Central School District is one of 13  districts within New York State which contract to provide an education to the Native American students who attend the school. A commitment to the preservation of the Mohawk tradition, culture and language exists within the school system.

The education program is housed in two separate facilities. The campus complex, which houses the Salmon River Elementary and Salmon River Middle School and Salmon River High School, are located in Fort Covington. The St. Regis Mohawk School, a Pre-K through Grade 6 school, is located in Akwesasne. Surrounded by the St. Regis Mohawk Reservation, the school currently serves approximately 520 Mohawk children.

On February 11, 1958 The Salmon River Central School opened its doors to the children of our communities. For the first time, children from Akwesasne, Bombay, Fort Covington and Westville were brought together to learn.

Distinguished guests, past graduates, and community members attended the 50th Anniversary and Rededication Ceremony at Salmon River Central on May 25th. There was an open house from 1-5 PM where people could tour the campus building and see displays as well as various exhibits of the schools greatest achievements throughout its rich and diverse history.
