Students

Dalton’s student body comprises young people who represent a wide variety of talent, background, and experience.
There is no “Dalton type” of child, but Dalton students do tend to be academically strong, intellectually curious, independent thinkers who thrive in an environment where they are actively engaged in the learning process and acquire knowledge through direct experience and primary sources. Approximately 1300 students enjoy the advantages of coeducation, interacting meaningfully both inside and outside the classroom with their peers and our dynamic faculty.
