New York State Superintendent Positions
Hancock is located in the beautiful foothills of the Catskill Mountains on the Pennsylvania border. It is on NYS Route 17/I-86, midway between Liberty and Binghamton, approximately 140 miles from New York City. Hancock is a rural, historical area, yet provides a full complement of services such as medical, financial and commercial businesses. Recreational opportunities abound and include public golf courses, modern bowling alleys, boating, canoeing, and skiing. In addition, Hancock is a sportsman’s delight, with many acres of unposted hunting land and some of the finest fishing in the Northeast. Principle industries in the area include lumber and logging products companies, bluestone quarrying, and numerous small businesses in the village.
The district is comprised of three distinctive educational components — the elementary school, middle school and high school. These three programs educate 315 students (of which approximately 50 are Pennsylvania students attending the high school on a tuition basis) in two buildings, located on one campus.
