If your family has been out of the school for more than two years, we would like to invite you to tour again, however it is not a requirement. We do, however, ask you to attend a group discussion for your child’s age group.
The Enrollment Office does its best to accommodate session requests, but cannot guarantee that we can give families their first-choice preference.
This is a comprehensive tour of our two sites: Duane Street and Hudson Street. During the school tour, parents get a 360° degree view of our school. Our hope is that you get a sense of the campuses, see inside our classrooms, studio spaces, libraries, gyms and more.
Tours last for one hour and are for parents only.
Following the School Tour, we invite prospective parents to return on a separate day to observe inside a live classroom, and to participate in a small group discussion with 2-3 other families. It is an open conversation about your classroom observations and also an opportunity to ask in-depth questions about the school. All parents should plan to attend this second visit to the school.
Interviews last for one hour and are for parents only.
