The Masters School Reviews

Masters has been the largest defining force in shaping my life. When I started here, I was trying to get away from the classic public middle school grind of fluorescent-lit classrooms, cliques, jocks, and a social isolation that dominated my life as a 'nerd.' Masters has been the first place I've felt truly accepted, and it has pushed me into a full-hearted love of the school. I've participated in dozens of incredible activities from debate and MUN to mathematical modeling to the school's national-title winning robotics team and newspaper. All these have taught me that Masters' truly special edge is the people. In addition to having a remarkably international and fascinating student body, there are teachers from all walks of life who have shaped me in and out of the classroom. Because of the ludicrous number of activities, I've spent upwards of 12 hours a day on campus every day for years. In this way, Masters is more a home than a school, whether you board or not. Thank you Masters!

Masters is a school that truly allows you to find your self and your voice. The Harkness Method, where kids sit around one large table for discussion with the teacher, rather than raising hands behind a desk helps develop several tools for success. Some of these include self-motivation and drive, meaningful communication skills and real world application.
Great school with a very diverse student and faculty body. With the new dining hall service this year the food is AMAZING. Also sports are on the rise and we now have many sports teams competing for championships. The new athletic facilities are extremely nice as well. The location is great as it is right in dobbs ferry and just a 5 minute walk from the Hudson River. I have loved my experience at Masters and highly recommend it!
