Welcome to the homepage for the Donald P. Sutherland School. The Donald P. Sutherland School "D.P.S." is one of five elementary schools in the East Greenbush Central School District. DPS is located in the village of Nassau. Currently, our school has an enrollment of 300 students in grades Kindergarten through Five.
I have been the principal of DPS for the last ten years and enjoy being a part of the school community. Our students continue to excel on the NYS Assessments in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies as well as strive to be "Kids with Character".
Take the opportunity to explore our school website to find out more about DPS! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the school.
