Student Life

The WDS Experience

At Westchester Day School, learning happens both within and beyond the walls of the classroom. From the way students, teachers and parents interact to the middle school class trips to Boston and Washington, D.C., children learn from every experience during the school day and year. Informal education during school hours and co-curricular activities after school combine to create a dynamic and active learning environment in harmony with the General and Judaic curricula. Whether they sing, cook, tinker or ball, WDS students grow as people and as Jews in a myriad of ways.
The halls and classrooms at WDS provide a nurturing and child-centered environment where all students are encouraged to pursue knowledge. Students at WDS learn to collaborate, problem solve, and think critically.

Integral to our traditional day school education are the class trips, extra-curricular activities and school programs that take place throughout the academic year. Assemblies, performances, Shabbat parties, and holiday celebrations bring animation and enthusiasm to daily learning. Events such as the Israeli Day Parade, Yom Ha’Atzmaut Celebration, Jewish Heritage Museum, Book Fair, and the Back to School Carnival bring excitement and enthusiasm to enhance each child's WDS experience.
