Dalton has a terrible sibling policy. Obviously, they do admit a greater % of sib applicants than from the general pool, but they turn down plenty as well. [ Reply | More ]

I'll try to answer your question: DD is in K at Dalton this year. She's a bright, self motivated learner. Does well in testing, is focused, has good manners, and smiles a lot. People often remark that she seems to be a happy child so she has that disposition. We're Asian too. And not leg/sib. We were told that she did very well on their assessment and she had a strong school report too. In talking to parents in her class, the common theme seems to be that Dalton's assessment is a lot tougher than most schools and they really weigh how a child dies on it heavily in considering who to admit. Hope this is helpful. [ Reply | More ]

That is total BS...their selection process is not objective and is very political and prejudiced. Dalton will not be the hero of your child's education process...the tutor you hire will. The curriculum is tough, because they want to pretend to be a very competitive school, but must of the kids are unable to keep up, because THEY WERE WRONGLY SELECTED to begin with. The parents have to hire specialists to help complete the homework and projects. [ Reply | More ]

Dalton has already started the process for 2017 admission: SPRING TOURS-FOR ALL APPLICANT FAMILIES APPLYING TO KINDERGARTEN FOR FALL 2017: We will be having Spring Tours throughout this coming April and May. To register for a Spring Tour, please call the Admissions Office (212-423-5463) on Saturday, February 27th between 9.00 am and 12.00 pm. You will be asked for your child's name, DOB, and current school/program. Please understand that our phones will be extremely busy that day so please keep trying. Voice mail messages, emails, or faxes will NOT be accepted-you MUST speak to an Admissions associate to schedule a tour. If you don't reach us on Saturday, we will continue taking calls on Monday and going forward. Here are some things to know: Spring Tours are only for families who will be applying a child to Kindergarten in the Fall. Tours are given several days each week, usually at 9.00 am and 10.30 am and last about 1 1/2 hours. We do REQUIRE that both parents come on the tour (if you are a two parent family), as this tour is considered your tour of Dalton if you do decide to apply. Taking a Spring tour is NOT required to submit an application. If you did not have a Spring Tour, a tour will be scheduled for you (along with your child's playgroup visit and your parent meeting) once you've submitted an application. Once the tours have filled up we do keep an active waitlist. [ Reply | More ]
