Diversity of culture, a rich tradition of excellence, and a caring eye to developmentally respectful practices has made Dove Day School a force in San Gabriel Valley Education since 1960.  Our strategies for success include a preschool that imparts a functional scholastic foundation and produces excited learners.  The grade school divisions are able to keep students in their maturity and social range with small learning groups and by providing enrichment or remediation as necessary.  Dove Day School's founders believed that a gifted educator takes the child in front of them and teaches that child.
