I love my friends and most of my teachers in Dobbs. Lots of the teachers are very helpful and accommodating. The school allows for so many opportunities. The theatre program and teacher is amazing. I am not the biggest fan of my guidance counselor, because I do not feel like she is any help to me, but this particular counselor is not the only one that works for the high school, I believe there are 3 more counselors for the high school. Overall Dobbs is a great school to attend.

Dobbs Ferry High School is a small but excellent school with an IB program. There are a lot of clubs and the athletics program is diverse and wonderful. The football team, that has a great cheerleading team, has just reached the play-offs again!
A pretty good (though very small) IB school with engaging teachers and an excited student body. The administration makes some strange budget choices, but the academics are good and the school itself is beautiful, with the hallways adorned with artwork from decades past. Great area, very safe and the school is a two-minute walk from downtown and Dobbs is only a short train ride away from NYC.
