Our teaching staff is the cornerstone of our school and they are fully supported by an involved administration, a friendly support staff, a facilities crew and a technology guru.
Our faculty are talented, experienced and have a deep commitment to independent education. They cultivate a learning environment that’s challenging, supportive and joyful. Many of our teachers hold advanced degrees in their subject areas and participate in ongoing professional development. They encourage students to be curious, think deeply, and pursue ideas and knowledge.
At Poughkeepsie Day School, our teachers design curriculum with their students in mind, providing many different pathways into a rich, integrated learning experience. They encourage their students, getting to know each child individually and offer additional help as needed. With active learning environments, an interdisciplinary focus and a strong advisory program, our teachers have the tools they need to give their students an exceptional education.
