Founded in 1930 by Constance Chilton and Elisabeth Morrow, The Elisabeth Morrow School (EMS) began as an early childhood and lower school dedicated to the academic, social, and ethical education of young children. Today, the school serves 429 students on a 14-acre campus in suburban New Jersey, just nine miles from New York City. As it has done since its founding nearly 90 years ago, EMS continues to provide its students with a dynamic, comprehensive educational experience in a supportive, child-centered environment.
Among the best independent elementary schools in the competitive New York City region, The Elisabeth Morrow School serves children from age three through grade eight, inspiring them to the highest levels of scholarship while fostering a global perspective and outstanding citizenship.
The school’s philosophy celebrates childhood and gives students the space to develop their own passions and the opportunity to build leadership skills and a strong sense of self. Central to the school’s culture are the values of courtesy, consideration, cooperation, and compassion, fondly known as “the 4C’s.”
Known for its extraordinary music and arts program as well as innovative work in elementary-level STEAM education, EMS blends traditional and progressive pedagogies across disciplines, aiming to cultivate intelligent, creative, and engaged scholars who are also compassionate and ethical people.
