Dove Day School

  • Small schools provide a uniquely individual educational experience. The learner's limits and potential are the driving force behind the curriculum offerings.
  • The interests of the student body provide the emphasis.
  • The needs of the classroom community turn into the strengths.
  • The non-sectarian format allows for not simply a tolerance of differences but rather a celebration.
  • Our students are encouraged to look at a larger frame and we can do that because we are a small school.
