Attica is located in Western New York approximately midway between Buffalo and Rochester. The gentle rolling hills of the Allegheny Plateau to the south, and the low Great Lakes Plain to the north quietly hold Attica in a rural setting. The Attica Central School District is one of the largest, geographically speaking, in the state, with approximately 148 square miles. It consists of 10 townships, including: Alexander, Attica, Bennington, Darien, Java, Middlebury, Orangeville, Sheldon, Wales, and Wethersfield. The area's workforce is engaged in farming, small shops, the correctional facility, and the school system.
The Attica Central School District facilities consist of three buildings: the Elementary School (K-4 gr.) 31 Prospect Street, Attica, NY 14011; the Middle School (5-8 gr.) 3338 E. Main Street Rd., Attica, NY 14011; and the Sr. High School (9-12 gr.) 3338 E. Main Street Rd., Attica, NY 14011. The middle and high schools are connected by some common corridors and some facilities are shared by both.
