Town is an independent coeducational day school serving approximately 400 children from Nursery 3s through Grade 8. A warm, inclusive, diverse, and values-centered school community, Town is dedicated to excellence in academics balanced with an emphasis on joy, nurture, innovation, and character development.
Since 1913, Town has fostered the educational principle of “Joy with Purpose” by blending both tradition and innovation in order to provide young students with an engaging educational experience designed to inspire creativity, curiosity, and healthy risk taking. Town’s challenging academic program and supportive environment prepare students to thrive as confident learners in high school and beyond.
As one recent graduate noted, “Town is a place where I always felt safe and learned how to learn. I was completely prepared for everything that followed Town, and to this day my Town teachers are household names. It was a family environment that made me feel unafraid to challenge myself.”
Located along the East River on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Town’s beautiful and well?maintained facilities support a rich program of academics, arts, and athletics.
