At Manhattan Day School, academic rigor is met and matched by all that is pedagogically creative and dynamic. Innovative approaches to secular and Judaic studies coexist harmoniously. Growth is wed to commitment, with teachers, children, and parents empowering each other to succeed. Bolstered by an atmosphere of loving communal support, individualized academic attention thrives. Every student, regardless of strength or weakness, talent or need, is considered a valued member of the Manhattan Day School (MDS) community And every student is taught at an individual level that makes the best learning possible. Our philosophy and approach are to treat your children as if they were our children and to extend our embrace to your entire family. And because we believe our responsibility begins in the beautiful dreams you have for your daughters and sons, we are committed to passing on to them the spiritual underpinnings that bring the full spectrum of Torah values to life. Our goal is for each child to graduate from Manhattan Day School as a mensch, with a story to tell of success, and each with a lifelong love of learning.
