Founded in 1998, Mizzentop Day School is a co-educational, NYSAIS accredited, independent day school for students from Pre-K through Eighth Grade. Graduates from Mizzentop attend some of the top secondary schools in the northeast and go on to matriculate to leading colleges and universities across the United States. The school is located in Dutchess County, New York in the village of Pawling.
Mizzentop Day School's motto of EXPLORE - EXPERIENCE - DISCOVER is exemplified in our educational mission which is to provide a stimulating and innovative educational program dedicated to building a supportive community through living values and instilling a love of learning in our students.
Our faculty provides a caring and supportive environment while our program focuses on unlocking each student's potential to build upon their unique strengths. As a result, children learn independence and self-confidence in a nurturing, secure, and structured environment tailored to their needs.
Students are encouraged to speak their minds, ask questions, and contribute. Learning from their teachers and from one another, they make connections and create solutions.
