Thank you for considering Town for your family! At the majority of independent schools, you can count on a great academic program, and at Town our students certainly get excellent preparation in the skills, content, and abilities they will need to be successful. What else will your children get at Town? The answer lies in our tagline of Joy with Purpose. At Town joy serves as the catalyst for profound learning, resulting in students who are curious, who passionately seek out the answers to their own questions, who take risks in pursuit of new knowledge and abilities, who know themselves as individual learners and take seriously their role as members of our school, city and global community.
While we call New York City home, the school community we’ve established is close-knit, inviting, and friendly – a place for children to truly experience joy in learning and for parents to be engaged. Town's curriculum and community action efforts expand the boundaries of our campus and enrich students' experience with connections to our neighborhood, our city, and our world.
We’d love for you to get to know us better, to see what sets Town apart, to imagine your child thriving in our N-8 educational model, and to start seeing your family as part of our community. Get a glimpse of Town's campus on our Tour Town page or better yet, schedule an appointment for a faculty-guided tour.
When you visit, you’ll notice that our teachers and students shine, and that our commitment to excellence and innovation within a nurturing environment sharpens curiosity and instills self-confidence. Our students think for themselves, take risks, and learn leadership skills, preparing them for a demanding secondary education as well as a path of lifelong learning.
We welcome the opportunity to meet you and show you more of our school.
