  • The Bank Street School for Children is a Nursery through Grade 8 co-educational school situated within Bank Street College of Education and is a working model of the College’s approach to learning and teaching.
  • We are an example of progressive education at its best.
  • The curriculum is experience-based, interdisciplinary, and collaborative. In a rich and varied academic program, children make discoveries from their own observations, explorations, and experiences and use them to construct understanding.
  • The emphasis is on the whole child: the emotional, social, physical, and intellectual being.
  • We embrace the values of community and diversity, and we strive to educate children to be lifelong learners in a dynamic and challenging world.

Bank Street is an absolutely incredible place, and the experiences and values I have gained there will continue to resinate with me throughout the rest of my life. This past year (June 2012), I graduated from Bank Street, and I''m currently continuing my education at Friends Seminary. After my 10 years spent at Bank Street, it has truly become a home to me. The people in this school are charming, kind, interesting, and over just wonderful to be with. Friendships have formed at Bank Street that will last a lifetime. Nothing can ever compare to Bank Street, as it stands proud and tall as a unique environment where every student it made to feel confident and comfortable with who they are. It's now 4 months after my graduation, and I cannot express to you how much I long for just one more day in this sacred place. Bank Street is a fantastic place for physical, intelectual, and emotional growth, and I hope that you highly consider it when choosing a school.

From time to time we all wonder how things might have turned out if circumstances and situations had been different. We apply that questioning to private schools.
