Elmsford is one of the few districts in lower Westchester County that has a public pre-k program. And what a wonderful program it is. It is my understanding that the current teacher has been teaching pre-k at Dixson for years and over that time has developed a well rounded, highly enriched beginning education for 4 year olds. I've had first hand experience with the pre-k program and have watched my child thrive in this environment.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
