Saddle River Day School Reviews

I was a student at the SRDS school. It was an ok school until about 2013 or 2012. The school became a place of judgment and sorting. If you were a quiet kid, you were left out of almost everything. It became a place where if you didn't fit the mold, you don't belong. Now don't get me started on some of the teachers. Most of them were really kind and they cared about the students; then there is that 5% of teachers that are rude, un-kind, and favored students. The programs such as art, science, and music; it was amazing and fun! Then math and social studies came into play. The teachers were giving out 3 hours of homework a night, and it was too advanced. There was 11th grade math given to a fifth grader. Really? How is that ok? Social studies was all over the place and no one learned anything. The lessons were incomplete and sometimes too difficult to understand. Be careful when sending a kid to the school. If your kid is social and smart, then ok, but if not; please don't come here.

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.
Proactive. Prepared. Innovative.

My daughter started in Pre-K in the Fall of 2020. We had completed the admission process before COVID-19 and were uneasy about having our 4 year old daughter start a new school that was unfamiliar to both her and us. We very quickly realized that SRDS was incredibly prepared and had worked all Summer on creating an environment that was as warm and inviting as possible for our little one (taking into account the restrictions). The programs and exposure our daughter gets are unique and unlike any other program we have seen at this age group. The curriculum for Pre-K is more reflective of the diverse experience many schools do not have until the middle
school level, if at all. The ratios are strict and taken very seriously. The school is flexible with remote or in person learning and parents are the ones that control our children’s learning journey in this unique world. We know are confident we made the right call with our daughters education journey.
