About Our School
The History of Unity Drive
Since opening in 1956 as an elementary school in the Middle Country School District, Unity Drive School has served the children of our community in a number of ways. In 1984, Unity became the Unity Drive Learning Center and in 1994 became the home of the district's Pre-Kindergarten program. In 2000, Unity opened with full-day kindergarten as Unity Drive Pre-Kindergarten/Kindergarten Center, one of our district's two early childhood centers.
In 2006, Unity welcomed Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK), which provides the youngest of our learners with a five day, 2.5 hour preschool experience. Closely aligned with our eastern center located at Bicycle Path School, we provide a smooth transition from the UPK to Kindergarten program. Unity Drive is the designated center for the following elementary schools: Eugene Auer, Jericho Elementary, Holbrook Road, North Coleman Road, and Oxhead Road.
Together, our Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs offer the young learner a continuum of opportunities for social, emotional, and academic growth and development. With an emphasis on literacy, a commitment to NYS Standards and a child centered philosophy that mirrors the Middle Country School District mission statement, we eagerly welcome you!
