East Woods School

31 Yellow Cote Rd,
Oyster Bay, NY, 11771-0117
Tel: (516)922-4400
Grades: NS - 8 | 211 students
East Woods School supports and invests in each student.  It partners with parents to open up doors for children.  It is a small school -- by design. 

The low student-to-teacher ratio allows for individualized attention and differentiated instruction.  This size allows each student to have the opportunity to lead, to contribute, and to “stand out.”   

The school does not follow the Core Curriculum, nor does it “teach to the test.”  East Woods teaches children how to think versus simply what to think.
