General School Mission

"Woodstock Day School is an independent place of learning for students from pre-school through high school where teachers, administrators, students, and parents actively participate in the many facets of our small, socially responsible community. We value the unique backgrounds and talents of each member of our school family, and support our students in their pursuit of academic, social, and creative success. Together, our goal is to prepare each student for meaningful participation in a complex world.
