      Who Are We at Dryden?

      • Dryden Elementary School is a place for learning, a place for friendship, a place for community and a place for our students to discover their passions. ALL are welcome at Dryden! At Dryden, we believe in empowering our students to learn. Our students are given the support needed to take ownership of their education and explore their curiosities within the parameters of a rigorous curriculum. Students and staff are encouraged to explore beyond our classroom walls - within our community and at a global level. What are we doing to help make the world a better place? This question is something we often reflect on as we learn and grow in our empathy and global perspective. We have so much pride, here, at Dryden. We have pride in our learning, pride in ourselves, pride in our relationships and pride in our community. #DrydenRocks and we believe it! Enjoy this page as it gives a great snapshot of who we are at Dryden. If you have any feedback, comments or questions, don't hesitate to contact us!
