9/25/2012parentI agree with the former post- the change in the quality of education my child is receiving from Springhurst is light years ahead of what he was getting at his old school. In addition the balance between education, self expression and fun is all perfectly met. My son RUNS to the school bus every morning- last year he said he hated school. The Principal, my son's teacher and every staff member we have encountered are motivated, professional and friendly.
6/10/2012parentOur first year here and what a marked difference from our last school experience. An all-encompassing approach that our children noticed right away. Thank you!
7/7/2010 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.
9/16/2009parentMy 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 !
3/23/2009parentVery 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!!!
9/30/2008parentDobbs 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.
10/16/2007parentSpringhurst 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.
9/28/2005parentMy 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.
8/13/2005parentI am very pleased with the education my daughter is receiving at Springhurst. It's the reason we moved to Dobbs Ferry - for it's school system.
4/1/2005parentIn 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.
