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.

Classroom Observation & Group Discussion

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.
