The Dobbs Ferry School District is awash in construction projects as a result of the capital improvement work approved by Dobbs Ferry voters in October 2019. The replacement of the Middle School roof was a priority and is well underway. We will be glad to have a new roof over our heads come fall.
2021/2022 SCHOOL BUDGET PASSES
Dobbs Ferry School Budget passed by a vote of 445 to 142.
Residents elected newcomers Brooke Bass, who received 494 votes and Penny Sullivan-Nunes, who received 488 votes to serve on the Board of Education.
Thank you to our wonderful school community. The school budget results re-affirm our residents’ strong commitment to the Dobbs Ferry School District and its mission and vision.
MIDDLE SCHOOL LANGUAGE & LITERATURE CHOICE BOARD
In order to continue the learning over the summer, K-8 Literacy Coordinator Michelle Yang-Kaczmarek has developed a collection of resources for all Middle School students. The Choice Board is a grid with a range of Language & Literature activities that give students the opportunity to choose the activity they would like to do and to learn in a variety of ways.

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).
