Dobbs Ferry Union Free School District Reviews
Rating 4.6 out of 5 15 reviews
I like how you get to know everyone, students, staff, teachers because the classes are very small, and the school its self is small as well
Dobbs ferry is a great school the kids are nice its fun and the teachers are nice and they care and Dobbs ferry is not a school to let you fail and with the ib program it helps to make it better than other schools around also the sports in the school are very good and know for football and other sports its a overall its a nice school that will never let you down.
I love my high school. The teachers are great and it is in the perfect location. I also love that our school starts later than any other school in the area.
Most teachers are helpful and are always there to help students succeed. Just about every classroom presents a positive environment that makes going to school more enjoyable. However there is a huge lack of AP courses offered.
This school district is exactly what you want from a learning community; amazing teachers, wonderful families, committed learners and everyone cares about each other. It is the main reason I choose to stay in NY even though I come from sunny California. I cannot imagine taking my kids out of the school district where they have grown academically and emotionally.
My time at Dobbs Ferry was very good. The school is a supportive atmosphere with many teachers that care about your well-being. The students are very close due to small class sizes. There is little room to create a personalized schedule depending on the classes you take but most classes are very good. Overall, Dobbs Ferry is a good school for the average learner.
Alright school. College readiness is what truly mattered to me and I feel as if no other place would have done it better. Sports are a little too football oriented but running on the trail in track kind of makes up for it. Very safe and (mostly) clean school as well. You do see the occasional dead cockroach on the stairs.
I liked the fact that the school offered IB classes which I believe prepares me for college in the best way possible. Also, the staff and teachers are really for the student and make me want to go to school everyday.
I am a junior at DFHS and am enrolled in the IB diploma program. It’s a lot of work but I feel that it is preparing me for college. I love the students here and feel that everybody is very nice.
I am a student of Dobbs Ferry High School and I find that especially with the MYP and IB programs, this school is pushing me to the best of my abilities and I know not to take my education for granted. I am incredibly lucky and fortunate to be able to attend this school.
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.
The teachers support you, guidance department is stellar in assisting Seniors through this college selection/application process. Met lifetime friends. Schools have small classes, led to more one-on-one teaching.
