Go Forth Unafraid®

The Dalton School is committed to providing an education of excellence that meets each student's interests, abilities, and needs within a common curricular framework and reflects and promotes an understanding of, and, appreciation for, diversity in our community as an integral part of school life.

Helen Parkhurst, Founder

Let us think of a school where pupils themselves are the experimenters...
The Dalton School is the innovative leader in developing creative problem solvers who identify issues, grapple with possibilities, and design solutions to global challenges from multiple perspectives.
