From Saddle River Day School

At Saddle River Day School we are passionately committed to preparing our students not only for college, but for life beyond formal education. We maintain small class sizes and excellent student-teacher ratios so that we can help each child realize his or her potential with confidence. We challenge each student as an individual, knowing that every person acquires skills and maturity at a different pace. We help our students engage in intellectual risk-taking at all ages by caring deeply for them as the individuals they are and by nurturing their souls as well as challenging their minds. We empower students with the tools, space, and encouragement to find their passions and thrive. We teach our students how to think and not what to think. At SRDS, we differentiate ourselves by balancing the familiarity of a small school with the programmatic slate of a big one. The result? Graduates who own their future.
