Manhattan Country School is a small, co-educational elementary school, recognized for its strong academic program and for being a diverse community that cares about social responsibility.
The academic program at MCS is comprehensive yet distinctive.
We recognize that a long and continuing academic career requires a strong foundation, and we work hard to ensure depth in the academic program.
Our commitment to diversity, equality, and social justice is also reflected throughout the curriculum which supports the values of working democracies: self reliance, free inquiry and a respect for differences.
Students learn to be responsible to themselves and to their communities.
The atmosphere at MCS allows children to recognize their own potential and encourages them to work toward it.
