Poughkeepsie Day School 


POUGHKEEPSIE DAY SCHOOL
, the pre-eminent pre-kindergarten through 12th grade school in the mid-Hudson Valley, was founded in 1934. Serving approximately 325 students, PDS features an intellectually challenging and creative interdisciplinary curriculum that recognizes the strengths and talents of each child. Small multi-graded classes and outstanding teachers encourage students to develop a lifelong love of learning and to become independent, critical, and creative thinkers and global citizens. A newly expanded high school curriculum offers students an excellent range of choices in each area of study: English, history, mathematics, science, languages, interdisciplinary studies, visual and performing arts, and physical education.

Reflecting on his visit to Poughkeepsie Day School, Dr. William Hiss, Vice- President of Bates College wrote: Poughkeepsie Day School is an extraordinary place: intellectually demanding, faithful to its principles of creatively engaging its students, exciting them about learning, and building an atmosphere of respect and commitment. Excitement and enthusiasm for learning are encountered in virtually all classes at PDS...  ere is an affectionate if unrelenting focus on helping students to think.
