outdoor_classFrom initial social development to college preparation, Woodstock Day School offers a highly personalized, hands-on, dynamic education. One-to-one, grade-to-grade, nursery through high school, our exceptional faculty and staff are committed fully unlocking the potential in every student.


Small class sizes are fundamental to our approach, allowing us to foster strong one-to-one relationships between our students and the teachers who inspire them.


Our campus has 10 buildings on 40 acres. Students are outside every day and travel from building to building for many of their classes. In addition, many teachers use the campus as an extension of their classrooms, utilizing the pond, the garden, the network of trails, and the woods as resources for their students.


WDS is organized into three divisions: an Early Childhood Division consisting of Nursery School, Preschool, Kindergarten, and Grade 1.  The Lower School encompasses Grades 2 through 6.  The Upper School is Grades 7 through 12. There are countless opportunities for students in the Lower and Upper schools to come together, through our Buddy Program, community celebrations like our annual Harvest Festival, and school productions like our annual musical.


The WDS Library is at the heart of academic life. The library prioritizes and promotes a strong culture of reading. A strong emphasis on reading aloud to all ages of our student population furthers this positive connection to books. Our library collection is eclectic and current so as to meet the needs and interests of all of our students and it is of the utmost importance to the librarian to know each student.
