“Joining Dutchess Day School is the best decision we have ever made. The quality of education is exceptional, granting my son a nurturing environment that has ignited and is fostering his curiosity to explore and be creative. Thanks to the loving teachers and supportive administrators, he is thriving. Our children’s safety and health continue to be DDS’s top priority, and we are grateful. At Dutchess Day School, we are a community, and we are blessed to be part of it. “ – The Hanafi Family, current family

“There is a wonderful culture of academic excellence at Dutchess Day School, but what we value most is the supportive environment created by the wonderful teachers and staff that enable our children to learn and grow in a safe and nurturing community.

When we recently moved from New York City to become full-time residents, we hoped our two boys would integrated quickly into the School. We couldn’t believe how fast they both hit the ground running and immediately found their stride in the community. We love DDS and our family hasn’t looked back since.”
– The McCurdy Family, current family

“I love DDS because of how nice the community is. Everyone says “Hi” and they all hold the doors. I also love DDS because during the lessons in class, you learn something but you also get to have fun learning those lessons.”

“DDS opened its arms and embraced our family during uncertain times. It provided safe haven for our boys during an otherwise difficult year, providing a sense of normalcy that was unique. We look forward to next year as the school continues to open up for the entire family to appreciate the full DDS experience.” – The Richter Family, current family

“After graduating DDS my transition to boarding school was a very positive experience. I felt prepared not only academically but in all other parts of my every day life as a boarding student. Dutchess Day taught me a type of maturity and thoughtfulness that I would not have gotten through any other school. I was able to enter the dorm with ease, while maintaining good grades and relationships with my peers.” – Alumn Maggie Hayes ‘19

“Having my son, Crosby, in attendance as a preschooler has brought me tremendous joy. To experience his excitement during our daily morning “drop-offs” and to see the same traditional DDS greeting by the current headmaster, Mr. Heard, not only makes me proud to be a parent but truly brings a smile to my face every day.”- Alum and Parent Byron Anderson ’97
