Fisher Island Day School

Fisher Island Day School is dedicated to preparing children for entrance into competitive high schools, for responsible citizenship in a diverse world, and for ongoing learning to lead a fulfilling and meaningful life.
The first years of a child's education form the foundation for happy and successful academic and personal growth.
During Kindergarten and the early grades, the minds of children develop very rapidly, at a pace greater than at any other time in their lives.
In addition to learning essential academic skills, developing aesthetic and physical capacities, and acquiring facility in languages, children at these ages begin to understand how their values and beliefs shape behavior and influence relationships with classmates and adults.
It is during these years, also, that children come to understand that learning is a life long process.
