Welcome from the Headmaster
We are very excited about the start of the 2013-14 school year. As the John Dye School starts its eighty-fifth year of operation, the school's mission of providing "for its students a program of academic excellence, one both traditional and dynamic, with a commitment to family and community" continues to inspire and serve the educational needs of our students. This personalized education for our 335 students is guided by a dedicated and professional group of educators who understand the educational, social and emotional needs of their students. At the same time we challenge our students to excell we also are mindful of the joys of childhood and provide a nurturing and joyful school experience for our boys and girls.
This past summer the school renovated John Dye Hall, the heart and soul of the school, as well as the the kitchens and student restrooms on campus. We also completed the final installation of SMART boards in the breakout rooms in the East and West wings. We will also begin this year the first phase of the IPad program for our students at all grade levels.
The legacy of John and Cathryn Dye, whose vision established the school in 1929, is being well-served by a new generation of dedicated faculty and administrators. Their commitment to the well-being of each child, academically, socially and emotionally continues to be the heart and soul of JTD as we begin our eighty-fifth year.
