Schaghticoke is pronounced SCAT-uh-coke or SCAT-uh-cook (early colonial spelling: Scaticook) derived from an Algonquian word Pishgoch-ti-goch meaning "Where the river forks" and likely refers to the confluence of rivers at Bulls Bridge in Kent. Did you notice that the SMS logo is an arrowhead with a forked river running through it? Our logo was created by students that won a contest during the first year Schaghticoke Middle School was open.
