Garden School was founded in 1923 to meet the need for a high-quality, independent school in Queens.
This mission remains unchanged as the faculty and administration work to offer the student body the best possible education in an atmosphere where both individual goals and those of the community are respected and nurtured.
At Garden School we focus on helping our students develop the skills they need to thrive in school and in life.
All children are uniquely talented and have their own learning styles, so we combine time-tested teaching methods with creative approaches to reach out to all of our learners.
Garden School offers a one-year English Language Academy (ELA) program for international students.
