Second graders at Coman Hill Elementary School have been studying the importance of community helpers, and with Veterans Day this week, students in two classes had a virtual visit with Marine Corps Maj. James Oliveto to ask him about his work.
Welcome to Coman Hill! As you enter into our school you will find an environment that is caring, nurturing, and committed to teaching each and every child. At Coman Hill our faculty and staff are dedicated to helping all students reach their full potential socially, emotionally and academically. From learning how to make “Kelso choices” to applying 21st century skills in daily lessons, Coman Hill students experience robust learning that builds a strong foundation for future success.
At Coman Hill, every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. We learn from our mistakes and we grow from each choice that we make. By allowing our students to explore, create, and collaborate, we inspire our students to be who they want to be tomorrow. We invite you to become active members of the Coman Hill community. By working together, all of our students will succeed as they journey through Coman Hill and the entire Byram Hills Central School district.

Writers Workshop allows students to practice writing as a meaningful part of the daily classroom curriculum working on the fundamental skills of literary growth. Students begin by learning how to hold a pencil correctly, coloring within the lines, and drawing pictures that help reflect their stories.
The program Wonders was adopted by Byram Hills to foster a love of reading in grades K-5 by providing a comprehensive set of connected resources. Wonders offers instruction specifically designed to create experiences that increase student engagement, build language skills, and inspire confidence.
Creating a supportive and nurturing environment is essential for growth and success. At Coman Hill, teachers focus on developing a community that highlights positive learning behaviors. They call it the unwritten curriculum.
