  • History:
  • The Clifton-Fine Central School was established in the 1950s. The district includes a large rural area in the southwestern Adirondack Park. The communities within the district that came together to form CFCS are Star Lake, Cranberry Lake, Wanakena, Newton Falls, Fine, and Oswegatchie. This area was once a thriving economy supported mainly by a large steel mill, and an equally important paper mill. The steel mill closed in the 70s and the paper mill has closed and reopened several times but is currently closed. Our school is housed in one building serving grades pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. We have a dedicated staff, many of which grew up in this district and have returned to serve the local students.
