Update on IB Middle Years Program (MYP)

Message From the Superintendent

Dear Parents/Community Members,

What a wonderful school year for our students, staff and families in Dobbs Ferry! 

The Dobbs Ferry School District continues to make excellent progress toward the goals outlined in our Strategic Plan as we realize the possibilities and potential of our strategic vision – Independent Thinkers Prepared to Change the World.

One-third of our graduating seniors this June earned an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, the largest number in the history of our High School.  We are also making significant progress in fulfilling our candidacy phase requirements for the IB Middle Years Program (MYP). We anticipate that we will achieve the prestigious MYP designation during the 2016 school year. This is an amazing trajectory for a public school district. The IB philosophy makes Dobbs Ferry unique among not only the Rivertowns, but all school districts in Westchester County.

In addition, we are extremely proud to announce that Springhurst Elementary School, Dobbs Ferry Middle School, and Dobbs Ferry High School have each been designated as No Place For Hate schools by the Anti-Defamation League. This honor makes Dobbs Ferry one of the first school districts to attain this important distinction in New York State. This special recognition is a culmination of our commitment to diversity and inclusion. It is a celebration of the many cultures and perspectives that make us a truly global community. 

We have many partners to thank – especially the Dobbs Ferry Schools Foundation, PTSA, Trailguides, SPRING and Booster Clubs for supporting and expanding the experiences of all students who walk through our doors. Your encouragement and patronage are central to our mission and vision.

To all of our Dobbs Ferry families - Best wishes for a relaxing summer, and I look forward to seeing you in the fall!

Sincerely,

Lisa  Brady, Ed.D.
Superintendent
