MYP Approaches to Learning Skill Reinforced
Students in the 6th grade Individuals & Societies (social studies) classes are using their Chromebooks to reinforce an MYP ATL (Approaches to Learning) skill. Students set a goal for themselves in 2017 and wrote down 2-3 steps they could follow to achieve their goal. They also created a motivational poster and made it the wallpaper for their Chromebooks. Great visual reminder will help them stay on track!
5th Grade Parents: Middle School Orientation
We invite you to join us for a 5th grade parent orientation on Thursday, May 11th at 7:00 pm., in the Commons. At this meeting, you will have the opportunity to learn more about our program and curriculum, as well as our fifth to sixth grade transition program. Please keep in mind that this meeting is for parents only. Over the next several months, we will have other transition activities planned for our future students.
Thank you for visiting the Dobbs Ferry Middle School website. We have designed the site to give you a glimpse into our Middle School. I hope you find it useful and that it provides the information you are looking for.
Recognizing that the young adolescent years can be challenging, we have designed our instructional program to motivate students academically to ultimately become lifelong learners, while also supporting and nurturing their social and emotional needs. Our experienced faculty and staff are committed to the academic, social, and emotional growth of all our students.
The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (MYP) is the cornerstone of our curriculum. The MYP is a rigorous program that intellectually challenges students by making connections between subject areas and the world outside the classroom. It provides the relevancy that young adolescents require and fosters analytical thinking and problem solving.
Dobbs Ferry Middle School also offers a robust extra-curricular program that includes all of the major sports teams and clubs that build on the students’ interests, including Improvisation, Ecology, Glee Club, Math Olympiad, Drama, Student Government and much more.
All of this work is enriched through the use of cutting-edge technology and our 1:1 Chromebook Program. Each of our students is assigned a Chromebook. These devices are used throughout the school day in all of their classes and at home.
Please be sure to keep up with all the amazing things that are happening at Dobbs Ferry Middle School. You can do this through this site, our Middle School Facebook page, and on Twitter (@principalmoose).
