Good Thinking (dedicated)

Schools  / 

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when someone says “Back to School”? For kids, it’s probably the end of summer, schedules and homework. For their parents? The end of summer, schedules, and freedom! But for the teachers and administrators at Saddle River Day School in Saddle River, New Jersey the first things that come to mind are the potential and possibilities a new school year has to offer.

That’s because the faculty and staff at Saddle River Day School know their students are
thinkers, athletes, artists, creators, innovators, and disruptors-in-the-making. Most importantly, SRDS students are leaders in both thought and action. They are lively, bold, curious, intelligent, interested, and interesting. This year, SRDS will continue to support and develop these admirable traits by opening a Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in their Lower School. This Center gives elementary aged students access to a collaborative, cutting edge work space and library where they can develop and hone a foundation in the research and design-thinking skills that will help them succeed in their future academic and, eventually, professional lives. Students are encouraged to try more and do more as they discover and pursue their interests
and passions.

The reasons families give for choosing Saddle River Day School are as diverse and unique as their student body itself. But some of the things that have been identified as differentiators in the crowded field of independent and private schools in Northern New Jersey are the small class sizes at SRDS, the impressive college placement outcomes, the exciting and challenging curriculum and one-of-a-kind enrichment opportunities, and the mission of SRDS educators and staff to see and value each child as an individual. But by far the best thing SRDS families new and old say about the school is, “SRDS just felt like home."

Saddle River Day School offers your student a rigorous academic curriculum that can be
tailored to the individual strengths of your child, the opportunity to participate in arts, sports, technology, visual and digital design, and academic clubs and organizations. Students are encouraged to create new clubs or organizations that align with their interests and goals. Project-based learning, capstone research projects, and a Gateway diploma option for their most motivated students are hallmarks of an education at Saddle River Day School.
