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.
