"A Long Walk to Water" Inspires 7th Graders
Seventh graders in Ms. Lief's and Ms. Rosenblum's Language and Literature classes read the book "A Long Walk to Water," and the students decided they wanted to help raise money to build wells in remote African villages that do not have access to clean water. They joined the South Sudan's Iron Giraffe Challenge and hope to reach their goal of $5,000.

New PSA raises awareness on the dangers of vaping/juuling featuring DFHS students and alums. The video is directed by Dobbs grad Yusuf Kapadia and sponsored by the Dobbs Ferry Youth Services Council. Parents need to talk to their children about this growing problem!
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).
