The Masters School, New York:
The Masters School is a co-ed day and boarding school that provides a first class preparatory curriculum for 5th-12th grade students, with boarding beginning from the 9th grade. Situated on 96 magnificent acres overlooking the Hudson River in Dobbs Ferry NY, The Masters School offers a safe learning environment and one of the few boarding school experiences in close proximity to New York City. A thoughtfully designed residential life program ensures that all the experiences students would have at home are part of campus life.
Academics for Middle and Upper School:
After 131 years of excellent teaching, nurturing the growth and development of each student remains a primary goal of education at The Masters School, and the teaching methods using Harkness tables (round tables) have emphasized the collaborative nature of learning.
Today, Masters offers its students a rigorous liberal arts curriculum. Core courses provide a solid foundation in critical thinking, and electives offer multiple opportunities for students to explore individual interests.
Classes are small, and the low faculty-to-student ratio fosters close working relationships between students and their teachers. In a diverse community of learners and leaders, students are challenged to grow as individuals and to develop the confidence to make a difference.
Students are expected to make positive contributions to every class, every day. By demanding daily preparation and participation, Harkness discussions foster in-depth understanding of course material and help students grow in their ability to listen, collaborate, and articulate their views while respecting those of others. The shape and small size of a Harkness table means every student has a front-row seat—there is no back row.
