High School Principal's Message

Welcome to the Dobbs Ferry High School website. Our website is designed to provide you with important information about our school and serves as a window into some of the wonderful things that we have to offer at DFHS.
 
As a high-achieving IB World School, we are dedicated to maximizing the potential of all students by providing a curriculum that promotes a global perspective. Our diverse curriculum and extracurricular activities provide students with the opportunity to build a strong academic foundation while allowing for the development of personal interests and creative expression. Students graduate from Dobbs Ferry High School prepared for success at our nations top universities or in any career path they choose to pursue. Our number one goal is for our students to leave the building each day feeling that they have been challenged, engaged, and encouraged. 
 
It goes without saying that one of the most crucial elements of student success is parent involvement. I was drawn to the Dobbs Ferry School District in large part because of the dedicated, positive, and supportive community of parents that call Dobbs Ferry their home. Our parents and community organizations play an integral role in the success of our school and are one of the many reasons why the high school is such a special place.
 
I encourage all members of our school community to visit the Principals Corner on a regular basis. It provides information on the latest happenings at our school and on the great work of our students and staff.
 
As always, please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or feedback.
