My daughter's 6th grade class is more diverse culturally than at her public elementary school. It is a self-styled "middle class private," which gives financial aid to those who need it. The teachers are dedicated and the courses are challenging... more

About this school

Mandell School is a co-educational institution for Toddlers through the Eighth Grade located on the Upper West Side since 1939. We are committed to providing a nurturing educational environment for children and their families, which through intellectual stimulation and emotional support, enable them to become responsible, active citizens of the world. Mandell School curriculum is well balanced, exceptionally rigorous, yet flexible enough to allow for a range of leaning styles. Mandell uses both traditional and progressive approaches to teaching, incorporating use of manipulatives, collaboration and hands on experiential learning. Good citizenship at Mandell is the first and most important element of our philosophical blueprint. It is a constant awareness on the part of our students, families and staff of the feelings and challenges of all other human beings as well as a heightened consciousness of our potential impact, both positive and negative, on the world around us. Our approach to the development of "Good Citizenship" is incremental and continuous. Our low student-teacher ratios and carefully designed classrooms encourage small group work and support risk-taking on the part of the students at all age levels. In this way we build the children's self-confidence as well as their belief in one another.
