From City and Country School

City and Country School, for children ages 2 – 8th grade, is an historically significant and leading progressive school founded in 1914 by pioneer educator Caroline Pratt. Located in Greenwich Village in New York City, C&C occupies seven landmark brownstones and their adjoining internal courtyards. Classrooms are equipped with ample space, natural light, and an abundant supply of carefully chosen materials. The teaching of sophisticated academic and social skills is contextualized through the use of Pratt’s creation: wooden indoor unit blocks, as well as her famed Jobs Program. Children solidify their leadership, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills in powerful and practical contexts, as well as develop a deep sense of responsibility and resourcefulness. Students graduate from City and Country School as creative thinkers with a true excitement for learning and the ability to collaborate and problem solve in any situation.

    Really amazing, warm, progressive school. Kids seem incredibly well adjusted global citizens by the time they leave. The staff are incredibly good. It is the Rolls-Royce of progressive schools, being the oldest and a model to others in the city, state, and country. Getting in is tough but once in you'll be exposed to a genuinely diverse environment with a great structure. The other parents are a very fun bunch also!

    My daughter is a recent graduate of C&C and I cannot speak highly enough about her experience there. She developed collaborative, organizational, and problem-solving skills that I know she will carry with her into her adult life. She also developed a strong sense of self, and self-reliance. When it came time to consider high schools, she surprised her mother and me by wanting to go away to boarding school. I worried about how she would manage the transition, not to mention living away from home as a 14-year-old. We just got our first progress report from her new school. It is peppered with phrases like "supportive of her classmates," "confident and engaged," "works well independently," and "a leader among her peers." I think C&C provided her with a foundation for a lifetime of growth and discovery. And I know she loved her time there.
    C&C is a wonderful school that has exceeded my expectations. My child is tremendously engaged, challenged, and happy. She's become an outstanding writer and researcher, and is confident, creative, and resourceful. The teachers are wicked smart and truly seem to enjoy their work, which is so important. My family feels lucky to have found this incredible school filled with warmth, charm, and a unique history in progressive education.
