Manhattan Country School has a dynamic, progressive academic program that prepares students to become confident leaders who work both independently and collaboratively with others. Our purposeful, hands-on approach to learning is evident throughout the MCS experience - from science investigations in Central Park and shop classes to the Social Justice Data Fair and Farm trips.
Social justice resides at the core of the curriculum. Teachers find intentional and creative ways to integrate the values of a working democracy, including interdependence, self-reliance, free inquiry and a respect for differences, in every subject. As a foundation, the essential knowledge and skills that we focus on at MCS prepare students to develop an understanding of their place in our constantly changing world. Our vision is that children will be able to challenge, ask questions and be active participants in the society in which they live.
Students graduate from MCS transformed by their academic education and social experiences. MCS provides a safe environment for students to understand their multifaceted identities and learn to embrace their voice.
