Pittsford Sutherland High School is a public high school in suburban Rochester, Monroe County, Upstate New York.

The school

One of two high schools in the town (the other being Pittsford Mendon High School) is located at 55 Sutherland Street (from which the school gets its name). Located in the historic Village of Pittsford, Pittsford Sutherland High School has consistently been ranked as one of the top 100 high schools in the nation according to an annual listing in "Newsweek". In 2008, Pittsford Sutherland is in 61st place.

History

Pittsford Sutherland was built in 1957 to reduce strains on the "Pittsford School" building.

Reconstruction

In 2004, Pittsford Schools started a renovation project on all buildings in the district. Sutherland is in "Phase II" of this process, with the addition of a new auditorium, gymnasium, 16 new classrooms (2 of which are Physics only rooms) and commons area. In addition, Sutherland students got a new library which was constructed in the old auditorium space. Architects retained some of the features of the old auditorium such as the high ceiling and woodwork from the old stage. The new library opened in January 2007 and the old library was then converted into a Large Group Instruction Room (L.G.I.).
