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.

    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.
    The best of progressive schools around. Easy and warm environment for kids to learn. Super attentive teachers, involved, friendly, helpful and caring parents, with no airs. It’s a really good community. C&C students usually end up being truly well rounded. Graduating kids get excellent placements typically in their top choice of schools.
