City and Country School, for children ages 2-13, was founded in 1914 by the poineering educator, Caroline Pratt, during the dynamic period of progressive education.
Believing the education is fundamentally a social process, we strive to create a vital school community that supports each child's innate passion for learning while also expanding his or her understanding of communities and cultures that exist beyond school and home.
The teacher's place is alongside the child, posing questions that elicit imaginative thinking, problem-solving and decision making in pursuit of a deeper perspective.
In the partnership of learning among children and teachers, community is lived through purposeful expriences that foster responsibility, cooperation, active participation, care and respect-qualities necessary to the life of a democrative society.
