Dobbs Ferry Union Free School District Reviews
The Dobbs Ferry School District is a very welcoming and friendly education community in a small village in suburban New York. The small district size allows for small class sizes and a sense of camaraderie amongst the students, parents, and teachers. They have great facilities in each school building, and numerous resources available to their students. The teachers are incredible and extremely dedicated to their students; many of them have been teaching at the school for more than 10 years and will always go the extra mile for their students. They follow the cutting edge of technological advances with up-to-date online resources and equipment in-building.
The school is in a safe location, allowing students to be safe while in and traveling to school. There is a wide array of classes for students to take if they are not involved in the full IB diploma track. Most teachers are invested in their students' success. The funding needs to be distributed a little more evenly to the theater program, science research, and smaller sports programs. Overall a good school to attend.
Dobbs Ferry School district has provided me with a great education and prepared me for the next phase of my life in college. The teachers and administration know all the kids by name. Class sizes were small, which gave me the opportunity to get to know my teachers and fellow classmates extremely well. It's nice to know that teachers looked out for you and were always available to help solve a problem, study for a test or just give you good advice and guidance. I know my parents pay A LOT in school taxes (they tell me often) but I am grateful for the opportunity to have such a meaningful, positive school experience.
