From Grades 4-12, Trevor provides signature Common Spaces:  a single open area in which teachers surround the perimeter. This is where students utilize their discretionary periods, collaborate with classmates, and meet with teachers and advisors outside of class. These spaces engender exceptionally close and kinetic student-to-teacher, student-to-student, and teacher-to-teacher relationships, and expose students to the dynamism of innovative thinking.

From Grades 4-12, Trevor provides signature Common Spaces:  a single open area in which teachers surround the perimeter. This is where students utilize their discretionary periods, collaborate with classmates, and meet with teachers and advisors outside of class. These spaces engender exceptionally close and kinetic student-to-teacher, student-to-student, and teacher-to-teacher relationships, and expose students to the dynamism of innovative thinking.
The caliber of teachers is another signature of Trevor. Experts in their field and driven to impart knowledge, teachers masterfully encourage inquiry and allow for an intellectual freedom that makes classes more interesting and learning more personal. A high engagement level builds confidence in students, leading them to interact comfortably with adults, ask hard questions, acquire knowledge, and extrapolate meaning.
The Trevor signature family-teacher conference breaks the mold of the parent-teacher conference: it involves the student, empowering him/her to recognize growth, solve problems, and take part in developing an effective educational plan. All participants feel great investment in goals that are developed out of consensus and that they have played an active role in creating.
Choreolab is a coeducational, extracurricular signature dance program for students in Grades 7-12. Its magical power lies in the fact that Choreolab is entirely student-driven and student-executed. Students devote hundreds of hours to create, collaborate, choreograph, direct, and perform for the entire Trevor community. Choreolab is facilitated by expert faculty and serves as a model within an inquiry-based learning environment.
In every grade, service plays a key part of Trevor curriculum. The aim is to help students develop a sense of responsibility for their community and become empowered citizens who critically engage with the world. We do so by integrating knowledge and understanding with compassion and social responsibility, while we strive to promote empathy through diversity of ideas and experiences.
Trevor keeps students active and engaged with their environment, helping them recognize the wealth of information and resources that abound in NYC. Students participate in age-appropriate outdoor experiences, both day and overnight, which help them learn more about themselves, their peers, and the natural world. Outdoor education experiences emphasize the development of independence, self-confidence, problem solving, and community building.
Inquiry-based learning engages students in activities and investigation, which drives true understanding. Instead of reciting facts, teachers guide and mentor students to discover and reflect, via well-crafted problems. Here, Advanced Biology senior students participate in a groundbreaking study in conjunction with NYU's social neuroscience lab, whose research team is documenting brain activity when students engage in different styles of learning.
The Trevor athletics program emphasizes sportsmanship, teamwork, and individual growth. A large percentage of students participate in our interscholastic athletic program. Passionate coaches, many of whom also teach in the classroom, help impart lessons central to athletic participation: self-confidence, cooperation, the power of hard work and commitment, and the value of winning with grace and losing with dignity.
Trevor teachers know every child both as an academic student, but also as a social being. Lower School programs empower students to find their voices, pursue emerging interests, and direct their learning. Students develop skills, knowledge, and strategies for learning and questioning; simultaneously, they construct a sense of themselves as students, acquiring the identities they will have as lifelong learners.
The Trevor arts program includes visual arts, dance, music, and theater arts, all of which are offered in the Lower and Upper Schools. Taught by working artists, its sweeping curriculum gives students the tools to create their own unique personal voice. In our experiential environment, students can inhabit the creative process while exploring new and alternative avenues of expression.
Trevor Day School is the Manhattan Pre-K through Grade 12 independent day school that expertly deploys inquiry-based learning to invoke each student’s good genius–the innate ability inside every child to thrive wholly through inquiry and intellectual courage.
Trevor enrolls more than 800 students in a coeducational setting on two campuses on the Upper East Side and Upper West Side of Manhattan.
Trevor’s rigorous college preparatory curriculum is designed to confer academic mastery while students develop the self-confidence, original perspective, courage, and perseverance to thrive in any idea-rich arena.
Perceptive, quick-thinking, devoted teachers, highly collaborative team-building spaces, an inviting, inclusive, and grounded family culture, and daily opportunities for interpersonal and intellectual interaction transform Trevor students into proactive agents of their own learning.
