Young alumni, reunited at MCS Farm Festival on Saturday, October 21, 2018

As we gradually double the size of our student body, Manhattan Country School's community is growing faster than ever. In addition to all the new faces that come through our doors each school year, we're also proud to have returning families. In the 2018-2019 school year, we have 16 MCS alumni who are also current parents! We also have 31 MCS alumni who have an MCS alum as a parent. For over five decades, MCS has provided a quality education to 1,500+ alumni and, considering how small of a school we are, we're delighted to see how many alumni want to provide the same quality of education for their own children.

Each year, through the generosity of the families of graduating students, a gift is made to Manhattan Country School. The MCS Farm has been the recipient of several gifts over the years. For example, our “wood-fired” bake oven was gifted by the class of 2011.  This year, the Class of 2018 gift allowed us to build two new walkways, replacing the two worn sidewalks around the farmhouse.
