School Reviews

The school is truly a dream. Top ranked in the country, few blocks from our apartment, on beautiful 5th Ave overlooking the MET. Most importantly, they engage, cultivate, and support their girls into a rigours education. We are happy our daughter was accepted into their limited spots; but amazed at their educational support that will make my daughter thrive. Huge highlights: First STEM program for girls, Financial Literacy through Bloomberg Terminal certification, brand new Upper School with state of the art technology. An Apple Distinguished School with ipads for students. An absolutely unreal Fabrication Lab that easily competes MIT/Caltech labs. Art and dedicated classrooms at the MET. Finally, and most importantly, a humble grace that shows how education is a gift; a gift to selflessly give back to society.
