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!

    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.
    Our child has been challenged to develop her skills, encouraged to pursue her inspirations, and engaged by a diverse, lively bunch of classmates. City and Country's teachers are outstanding. Its facilities are a charming catalyst to a young imagination. This school's involvement of students in its daily operations through the jobs program creates a city within the city. We are happy at City and Country.
