The Middle Country Central School District (MCCSD) covers approximately 16 square miles (41 km2) in the Town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County, New York, United States.

It is composed of the villages and hamlets of Centereach, Selden, parts of Lake Grove, Coram, Lake Ronkonkoma, Port Jefferson Station and Farmingville.

The district is currently composed of eight elementary schools, two Pre-kindergarten/Kindergarten Centers, two middle schools, and two high schools. The K-12 student enrollment projection for the 2007/08 school year is approximately 11,000 plus over 500 pre-kindergarten students. [1]



Middle Country Central School District was formed in 1957 through the consolidation of the Centereach and Selden school districts (also known as School Districts 11 and 12 at the time, respectively). At the time, it consisted of five kindergarten rooms and 51 elementary classrooms.[1]

At the time of consolidation, the area was going through unprecedented growth due to suburban spread. In 1954, for example, the Centereach School District faced a classroom-shortage crisis. It was solved only when local home developers (whose buyers and new area residents were causing the crisis) volunteered to build ten "one room schoolhouses" in one month's time, with a plan to later convert the buildings into residences.[2][3][4] This "Unity Drive" project name was adopted by the elementary school (now a Pre-K/Kindergarten center) built nearby a few years later.

Suburban growth resulted in Middle Country becoming the fastest growing school district in the state.

The student population peaked in 1976 at 16,738.[1]
