A Learning Environment in an Actual Environment

Woodstock, NY, is what we at WDS refer to as a Micropolis, a rural village in close proximity to a major urban center. It is this combination of location, town history, and our backgrounds as educators that has inspired the concept of Micropolitan Education—a system of learning, foundation of core values, and global perspective—that combines the finest qualities of village life with the excellence of a metropolitan education.

At WDS, students benefit from the best of both worlds. They become confident and community-minded. Independent and environmentally-aware. Responsible and engaged. Scholars, friends-like-family, and leaders. While rooted in village life, they have exposure to the wider world, with an emphasis on academic achievement, and a close engagement with modern technology and media.

 From Nursery School through Grade Twelve, WDS provides a unique end-to-end experience for your child. The results speak for themselves. WDS students grow into global citizens. Guided by their Woodstock roots, they attend top universities and are successfully employed across the nation. All along the way, they care, understand, relate, and give back to the environment, their communities, and our world.

If you think you have to choose, think again.
