Welcome to Neil Armstrong School where students, families and staff work together to "Reach for the Stars!"
Neil Armstrong is an inclusive, friendly and close knit neighborhood school. We embrace our rich traditions at the same time that we embrace the student centered, technology rich instruction that prepares students for life in our 21stCentury. Our community is strong. We are proud of our diversity. Our Spartan Way and our joint commitment to our children knit us closely together. We invite you to join us in our efforts to create a joyful place for children to learn about their community, their world and the world yet to come.

Elementary students created activity books for children in UR Medicine’s Golisano Children’s Hospital, making 300 of them to donate to patients ahead of the holiday season.
The GCHS Service Club brought in more than $4,500 for Gates Chili families through its annual homeroom drive. Each year the Service Club uses the funds from this drive to adopt families from around the district and provide them with food and gifts for the holidays.
In the next couple of months, all GCCSD elementary schools will have a salad bar. Armstrong fifth-graders Gianna and Caiden helped Superintendent Dailey learn how to use the new salad bar the Spartan Way.
The Gates Chili Athletic Department is proud to announce the 2019 Fall All-County Award Recipients in their respective sport.
Just as GCCSD prides itself on being a united community, so do the towns surrounding our campus. In a collaboration with local organizations, Spartan Circle provides the meeting point between the two.
