The Principal's Office
Welcome to Ditmas, where our teachers, support staff and administration continually challenge our students with high expectations for academic, social and emotional growth. The information available on this site and through our school describes the varied programs and services that are specifically tailored for our school, and students. Our extended instructional time in Language Arts and Mathematics along with the increased time and reduced class sizes in our Basic Skills Programs continue to help improve student achievement in these critical areas.
Our teachers continue to employ “best practices” in the classroom, using student data from standardized benchmark assessments to make informed instructional decisions to maximize student achievement. Teachers are employing strategies from professional development, Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP), to improve student problem-solving skills. Knowing that parent–teacher communication is vital to student success, parents are encouraged to frequent our teacher websites for homework and classroom information, and use our contact information to keep track of your child’s grades.
Please continue to use this website, as information is updated throughout the year. Once again, we are looking forward to continued success for all our students and their families.
