A school where park and river meet.

Virtual Town is Open! 

While our physical school building is closed due to COVID-19 restrictions in NYC, the Town team is busy working from home and happy to connect, while teachers and students are engaged with our distance learning model.

Admissions questions? We are currently accepting inquiries for 2021-22 and applications on a rolling basis for 2020-21, and we are offering a special "flipped" admissions process in lieu of Kindergarten 2021-22 spring tours. We are also happy to connect for an informal conversation any time. Learn more here, or contact us at

We wish you and your families health, safety, and some joyful and peaceful moments together as we are all doing our part to support our community and city through social distancing practices. Contact Town any time at
