Pre-K through Grade 8
Dutchess Day School values children’s natural curiosity and fosters an enduring enthusiasm for learning. In an atmosphere of trust and mutual respect, students are encouraged to take intellectual, athletic, and artistic risks and to develop independence, confidence, and imagination. Students share their talents through collaboration and through service to the school, the community, and the larger world.
Our teachers encourage each student to develop naturally and joyfully. The interdisciplinary curriculum allows students to learn in small groups and benefit from a wide variety of materials and experiences. The school’s approach is one of great respect for diversity and individuality of each student.
