I love Springhurst- amazing teachers and a wonderful curriculum. Emphasis is on strengthening whatever your child's strengths and weaknesses are. I went to a small private school when I was growing up and feel that my son receives the same attention and direction that I did.

Those are some LOW English Language and Math scores. The teachers can be very nurturing and my daughter loved the fact that she didn't get any homework. However, this school's claims of greatness have a lot more to do with the tax bracket of the residents of Dobbs Ferry and not performance. I was shocked at the poor quality of the curriculum. This is a great school if you have a child with special needs because the school has all inclusive classes in which profoundly autistic children have therapists who come into the class and assist them. Unfortunately for my daughter, she was bitten twice during the school year and the principal refused to change her class both times.

My children have attended top schools in another district, but you can not beat the small-town support and involvement of Springhurst. Both of my children are thriving and we could not be happier.

Springhurst Elementary School has been an excellent school for my three children. The principal, Doug Berry, shows commitment to the school and is demonstrably caring about the students. The quality of teachers has been generally very good. The early grade teachers are appropriately nurturing, and the teachers in the older years are tough yet fair. The emphasis is clearly on preparing the students for the New York State standardized tests for elementary age children. This is not being critical since all schools focus their efforts on the "pass" rates, which are published in the local papers, and used by real estate brokers in attracting prospective buyers to the Village. Overall, I have been pleased with this school.

My child started Kindergarten this year and so far from what I can see, she will get a great education and lots of attention. Dobbs Ferry schools are the best !

Very special school with a loving learning environment! Kindergarten guaranteed wonderful! My children adore their classes and teachers and they are learning beyond their years! Office staff top notch too! Communication with parents is right on target! Our family has had a decade of wonderful experiences and memories. Proud to be a parent in this school! Parent involvement is superior. Visiting Artists have indicated this and it's clearly the case in all my children's classrooms. Springhurst has a wonderful Special Education Staff. The school has knowledgeable teachers whom clearly their jobs. Children in general are kind to each other and very compassionate! Families moving to Dobbs Ferry are blown away by the advanced education their children are receiving. Students very often do family invited presentations and are not shy about sharing what they have learned! Cannot say enough good things about Springhurst! Very pleased with my ten years in this school and looking forward to the next five years!!!

Dobbs Ferry offers the best balance of diversity and good education that I have seen in all of Westchester. There are some schools that are better, but the neighborhoods have absolutely no diversity. In my opinion, it is just as important for my child to see the world as it really is with all it's diversity. The education my child has received is leaps and bounds ahead of the nearby district we moved out of. So, with above average education and decent diversity, Dobbs Ferry (Springhurst) is highly recommended.

Springhurst is full of families involved in their children's education and qualified teachers; who in many cases, go above and beyond their duties for their students. Springhurst is an ideal school for grade-school aged children, and I cannot say enough good things about it. Our family is glad to have children in this school for the past seven years, and we look forward to the next six years when our youngest graduates this wonderful elementary school.

My daughter is in 4th grade. She has had great teachers. The school has incorporated a wide range of culture in the studies. For example the learned about Nigera and the school had professional dancers come in and teach the children African dancing and drumming. The kids also made crafts and musical instruments similar to those found in Nigera. They then set up a market place for the kids to sell the goods to one another. It was a great experiance that my daughter loved. The school offers a broad range of activities such as music, computers, choir, & PE. They also offer afterschool programs the kids can join such as dance, ceramics, and cooking just to name a few. I highly recommend Springhurst to any parent. The education is of the highest quality and so are the teachers.

In comparison to primary schools fo other regions, there's little homework in SPRINGHURST. As ESL student, we want more detailed and systematic education of English in addition to the homeworks.
