Westchester Day School, a Modern Orthodox, co-educational, dual curriculum Jewish day school, prepares students to live as mensches and lifelong learners and inspires them to impact the world around them by cultivating a commitment to Torah, midot, community and academic rigor.
דרך ארץ קדמה לתורה Menschliness before Godliness (Vayikra Rabba 9:3, ויקרא רבה ט:ג)
First and foremost, a WDS student is a mensch. Our students conduct themselves with dignity and respect for themselves and others. They have a strong sense of right and wrong and are guided to be ethical in their lives.
In addition, WDS students:
become lifelong, independent learners who grow from inquiry, discovery, and reflective trial and error. They are problem-solvers who are flexible and adapt to new situations. 
כי נפלתי קמתי (מיכה ז:ח)
Because I have fallen 
I have risen

(Micah 7:8)

עבדו את ה בשמחה (תהילים ק:ב)
Worship God in joy 
(Psalms 100:2)

הנני שלחני (ישעיהו ו:ח)

(Isaiah 6:8)

How wondrous are 
your creations
(Psalms 104:24)
are devoted to the State of Israel as key to the life of the Jewish people, and to Hebrew as our national spoken language and that of our foundational, sacred texts. They are also proud, grateful and contributing citizens of the United States of America.

ליבי במזרח ואנוכי בסוף מערב
My heart is in the East though 
my body is in the West
(Yehudah Halevi)
