School Notes:

  • East Woods’ close-knit Pre-Nursery through Ninth Grade environment provides a strong and consistent early childhood, elementary and middle school experience. The school is small by design enabling the school to reach every child and facilitate inter-age activities that foster school spirit, confidence, compassion, leadership qualities and mutual respect. The school’s superior faculty understands and celebrates the special characteristics, interests and curiosity of children. Our teachers get to know the intellectual, creative, social, physical and emotional qualities of their individual students. They encourage and assist children to stretch their abilities to meet challenges and achieve their fullest potential. Small class size and advantageous student/teacher ratio encourage hands-on discovery, with team teaching and an exciting multi-disciplinary curriculum. Our alumni/ae consistently confirm the lasting value of their East Woods education. Housed in a Georgian brick building, with several additions, East Woods is set on 46-acres of fields and woods. The safe, inviting campus offers the setting for a cohesive, disciplined and caring academic environment. East Woods serves students from many local communities including Oyster Bay, Centerport, Cold Spring Harbor, Hicksville, Melville, Mill Neck, Locust Valley, Huntington, Glen Cove and Syosset.
