Your kiddos skip off to school five days a week, so make sure their time is well spent by sending them to Blue School—a passionate, independent school for learners as young as two all the way through 8th grade.

Named one of “The 13 Most Innovative Schools in the World” by Business Insiderand one of “The six most innovative global schools” by Wired magazine, here are just a few of the reasons parents are choosing Blue School for their child’s education:

  • With a dynamic balance of academic mastery, creative thinking and self & social intelligence, a Blue School education instills a lifelong passion for learning.
  • Blue School’s inquiry-driven approach encourages bold collaboration and rich project work. The school’s core values include exploration, play, creativity, self-awareness and a strong family-community connection.
  • The lower Manhattan campus features a thoughtful, inspiring design with amazing features like a lab space for studio art, STEAM, music and drama; an Upcycling Center, Wonder Room, Materials Library and more. There’s even a rooftop terrace!
  • Prospective parents will soon discover a welcoming community of students, educators and parents with a passion for socially conscious, independent education.

But don’t just take our word for it! Visit the school yourself.

Admissions tours are held Tues. & Thurs. mornings, where you can see the students and teachers in action. Don’t miss the Spring Open House: there’s one for pre-primary and primary grades on May 1, 6-7:30 p.m. at 241 Water Street.
