From the time Manhattan Country School opened its doors in 1966, we have been committed to providing students from pre-K through eighth grade with a progressive education grounded in diversity, equity, social justice and sustainability. We have been equally committed to educating students in a community of broad economic diversity and with no racial majority. Over the years, our work and the graduates we have nurtured have served as inspiration for what can be achieved in a diverse educational community.
In 2011, our Board of Trustees approved a strategic plan that supports our founding mission and values. The goals include sustaining our sliding-scale tuition model, improving our facilities, increasing teacher compensation and expanding our impact.
