Milestone School

  • "Good Beginnings Never End" is the premise upon which The Milestone School was founded in 1979.
  • An independent Nursery through Grade 4 day school, we prepare students for a lifetime of learning.
  • Realizing the importance of this critical phase of learning, our highly enriched curriculum will take your child through this first and most important "milestone" in his or her education.
  • Rooted in Montessori principles, we provide a strong academic foundation while leaving room for the child to explore many other disciplines from Spanish to our highly acclaimed Shakespeare program.
  • Our Small classroom sizes allow for individualized attention ensuring each child's academic success.
  • Centrally located in the Fleetwood section of Mount Vernon, Milestone draws its diverse student body from Westchester, Rockland and Fairfield Counties, as well as the surrounding New York City area.
  • Ours is an enlightened setting...it goes beyond retention of knowledge and works with each child to develop confidence, independence, and a desire to learn...preparing them for a a future of "endless possibilities.".
