SRDS NEWS AND EVENTS

There’s an Argument to be Made for Middle School Debate

We all have opinions. As we have seen in recent years, the way these points of view are communicated makes a great difference in the way they are received and we are perceived. This is why learning the art of debate is an important life skill for students at Saddle River Day School, so they can effectively, as debate coach and Middle School history teacher, Radley Glasser puts it, “develop and articulate their own thoughts, but also consider opposing opinions critically and empathetically, while engaging in civil, yet substantive, discourse."

At the Heart of SRDS

We all know that to be a student at Saddle River Day School, one must have the intellectual curiosity and capacity to succeed. But ask an SRDS student what they do beyond their studies and it will quickly become evident that they have hearts to help those who are less fortunate. When called to make a difference in the world to -- as our mission statement says -- “become a caring and ethical contributor to society,” our students, faculty and families step up.
