Mission Statement

Strategic Plan

Dalton seeks to build upon its current strengths and address those areas that need improvement.

The School will continue to encourage each student to develop intellectual independence, creativity, curiosity and a sense of responsibility toward others, both within the School and in the community at large. We embrace the challenges that our commitment to continued excellence entails. In order to implement successfully the Dalton Plan's individualized approaches to our students' educational needs and its key elements of House, Assignment and Lab, the School must acquire more physical space for our students and faculty.

Our efforts cannot rest with the resolution of our space needs. Four themes are voiced throughout the Strategic Plan: enhancing global perspectives; promoting vibrant, thoughtful innovation in curriculum and pedagogy; actively instilling good values; and rigorously assessing our success in attaining our objectives.
