OUR SCHOOL

Our Mission Statement: The mission of The Dorset School is to provide a foundation of educational excellence that helps every child realize his or her intellectual, moral, physical and creative potential.

The Dorset School is nestled on 8 acres in the beautiful Green Mountains. The school serves students from Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. Many families from neighboring towns choose The Dorset School for its quality educational opportunities, intimate classroom instruction and high standards of academic excellence.

The Elementary School:

The primary grades offer students a solid foundation in Math, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies. Small group learning and individual attention by dedicated teachers provide a comfortable learning environment. Art, Music, Spanish, Computer, Library/Media Skills, Physical Education, Health and Guidance are integrated into the course of study for all children.

The Middle School:

Students in grades six through eight are challenged with a curriculum that builds on previous knowledge while stressing independent learning and analytical thinking. Students of all ages become invested in their learning when they build their own "Personal Learning Plan". After school programs, athletic offerings, community projects and a variety of presentations, activities and trips create further enrichment to the student's overall educational experience.
