Saddle River Day School Reviews

My son graduated from SRDS last year and is at the Gabelli Business School at Fordham University and doing exceptionally well. He was an actively involved student who thrived and did very well academically, but more importantly, he is a good kid who was supported and encouraged by an incredibly caring faculty and staff! There were always consequences for not doing "the right thing" in or out of the classroom, so it makes me sad to see people who say it is like a "country club" and there are "favorites" because it is just not true! No place is perfect, but most of the kids who want to succeed take full advantage of everything the school has to offer. The kids that don't engage may have a different experience but that isn't the "normal" experience for most of the students there. And the college counseling is outstanding and acceptances have been VERY good in recent years, especially the Class of 2019. I am grateful to SRDS for preparing my son for college and what lies ahead.

I'm very happy with the connections my child has made with her teachers, advisors, and administration. She is an excellent student and athlete and upon coming here has now opened up more socially. Her interests have grown as there are opportunities to take part in many activities, student leadership organizations, volunteering, and just feeling like she has a second family. She is challenged by her studies and feels comfortable asking questions regarding assignments or clarification of a topic of study. Overall, the access she has to advanced learning, participating in multiple events/activities, and social connections with her her peers has made her very happy as a student. I feel she is in a safe and comfortable environment which is very important during early teenage years. I am confident that she will continue to do very well here and I look forward to the many resources she will have at SRDS when applying to colleges.
My 2 children attended SRDS with stellar results! The school really "knows" the students while keeping them challenged academically. College placement is very personalized with some going to Ivy's or very competitive schools and some going to smaller colleges for special interests. The faculty is excellent and caring, the athletics has REALLY improved under the new AD, and the kids involved are role leaders and true student-athletes since the expectation is that they MUST be good students (my son played 3 sports a year and took 7 Honors & 7 AP classes in total while maintaining a 3.75+ unweighted GPA). The technology is also very cutting edge with an unbelievable Makerspace lab and incredible Graphic Design Studio (1 of 3 art studios on campus). The school holds firm in matters of discipline (btw, the food is GREAT... Chef Mark is amazing!) You can bet it is worth every penny if you want your kid/s to thrive and be successful in and out of the classroom.
