As a graduate of Manhattan Day School, I can say with confidence that I would not have received the same quality of education anywhere else. The teachers and administration are fully dedicated to nurturing every child, and I made some of my best friends during my time there. Waking up in the morning was easy; the school day is fun, and I was surroudned by people who cared about me.It's a wonderful school.

I am blown away by this school and its commitment to education. It really cares for each and every child. The principal stands at the front door every morning to greet the kids, the staff takes a personal interest in the success of the children and the doors are always open for feedback, questions, etc. Action is taken where needed and learning is encouraged in a loving environment. The teachers want everyone to succeed and will work to help it happen.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
