On Monday, April 12, 2021 the Dobbs Ferry School District is returning to full time in-person learning. Students will be back in the classroom except for those families that still opt to continue remote learning through the end of the school year. These students will be livestreaming into the classroom. Safety precautions will still remain in place.
Dobbs Ferry Middle School students give a "thumbs up" to going back-to-school full time on April 12th. After more than a year of remote learning and hybrid schedules, they are eager to see all their classmates and teachers in person.

MIDDLE SCHOOL LANGUAGE & LITERATURE CHOICE BOARD
In order to continue the learning over the summer, K-8 Literacy Coordinator Michelle Yang-Kaczmarek and K-6 Math Specialist Josh Rosen have developed a collection of resources in both ELA and Mathematics for all Springhurst students. Each grade level will have a Choice Board, which is essentially a grid with a range of 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).
