• Dobbs Ferry Middle School builds on the fundamentals taught at the elementary school to prepare students for high school.  Small class size results in close student/teacher interaction and fosters a healthy environment, suited to the needs of early adolescence.  Our teachers motivate students through a rigorous standards-based curriculum.

    Students also have options that allows them to explore subjects at a deeper level.  Other features include:
    • Foreign language instruction at all grade levels
    • Art and music education
    • Homework center
    • Support services from specialized staff
    • Communication among teachers, students and parents
    • State-of-the-art technology
    Students are encouraged to take an active role in pursuing their interests. In addition to our award-winning Destination Imagination teams, band, chorus and orchestra, which build on their elementary school experiences, the middle school offers a full range of after school clubs and sports teams.
