The Dobbs Ferry School District strives to develop independent, curious, and open-minded learners who think critically, work collaboratively, act ethically and are knowledgeable about the world around them.
New School Speed Zone
School is now in session and want to remind parents and community members to watch out for the new School Speed Zone on Broadway in front of the High School/Middle School campus. The speed limit is now 20 MPH. Be aware of pedestrians, skateboarders and bicycle riders in the crosswalks. Drive slowly and safely!

Come into our teen’s bedroom, test your knowledge, and strengthen your observational skills. As you stroll through the room can you find what hidden references and paraphernalia could indicate a teen’s drug or alcohol use?
Dear Dobbs Ferry Parents and Community Members,
Last week Dobbs Ferry High School students excitedly participated in MAC Field Day, but there was also a spirited competition taking place between the grades in The Commons. With the help of the High School Ecology Club and the Greenburgh Nature Center sustainability team, students vied for top honors as the class that recycled the most amount of waste during spirit week.
While the seniors won the MAC Field Day battle, it was the juniors who took top honors for waste reduction. The team with the best “Diversion Rate,” as determined by a cafeteria waste audit, also won extra points at MAC Field Day. Monies raised from recycled bottles during the week-long contest will be donated to a local charity.
Here are the diversion rates from the audit- the percentages represent the amount of recyclables and food waste diverted from the waste stream:
The waste audit was a great representation of how the kids have started to embrace the recycling/composting initiative on the High School/Middle School campus, but of course there is still a lot of work to do! Here is a list (compiled by the PTSA Springhurst Outdoor Classroom/Garden Committee) of some simple suggestions to reduce waste, save energy and money in your own home, and How You Can Help Dobbs Ferry Go Green.
