I have 3 children at the Dalton School and this is our 4th year here, so we have experienced preschool to 4th grade. The very first thing we noticed was the kind and caring teachers, especially in the lower grades. As young students they felt comfortable and nurtured. They felt loved and at the same time knew what was expected of them and I believed this allowed them to thrive. They all have always loved going to school here. The teachers have been great, but I think what ours kids would say they like best is their friends.
