About SRDS

At Saddle River Day School we are passionately committed to preparing our students not only for college, but for life beyond formal education. We maintain small class sizes and excellent student-teacher ratios so that we can help each child realize his or her potential with confidence. We challenge each student as an individual, knowing that every person acquires skills and maturity at a different pace. At each step of growth the mind needs to encounter ideas, demands and expectations to continue a trajectory to intellectual excellence. We help our students engage in intellectual risk taking at all ages by caring deeply for them as the individuals they are and by nurturing their souls as well as challenging their minds.

We expect our students to achieve, and they do. They achieve in an atmosphere of personal care, strong student teacher bonds, and intellectual challenge.
