Parent: We had used the threat of sending our daughter to all girls school as incentive to boost her grades. She was bright, but far too easily distracted by her phone and social drama. Then, three months into her sophomore year, she asked to transfer to AoSE; she was as overwhelmed by the social and academic pressures of our high school as we were underwhelmed by her GPA.
AoSE has proven one of the greatest gifts we’ve given our daughter.
She benefited immediately: her stress level dropped, her grades soared and she became the engaged daughter we’d missed at home. She embraced sports, joined clubs and made great new friends. The uniform also made mornings much easier!
Our daughter is graduating a member of the National Honor Society and going to a college that wouldn’t have been a realistic reach before she transferred. At AoSE she blossomed into the well-rounded, confident young woman we hoped she’d become, given the right environment. AoSE is that environment.

Alum: At P.S. 130 teachers and supporting staff are very welcoming and kind to one another as well as to the students. Once entering the school, security is friendly and immediately attentive. During school events, the parent coordinator, attendance teacher, assistant principal and gym teacher all promote the school culture of acceptance and value for diversity. I greatly admire these staffs and believe it is the foundation they embed that foster the learning for their students.

The Town School
- Private School
- New York, NY
- PK, K-8
Alum: I went to Town from Kindergarten through Eighth grade. I so loved my experience that I've stayed involved with the school twenty-plus years later, and I have maintained life-long friendships. I work in the writing world now due in no small part to Ms. Siegel's fifth grade English class. I still remember Bridge to Terabithia! Ms. Siegel opened my eyes to reading. It was first time I stopped looking at the page numbers.
Having no high schoolers really allows for Town students to grow into leaders and to take on active roles in the community. In the upper school, fifth through eighth grades, I served multiple terms in student senate (sadly I lost in my eighth-grade presidential bid). Playing ten-plus competitive soccer and basketball games starting in fifth grade not only helped improve my skills on the field, it gave me a head start on learning to be a teammate and a leader. These experiences served me well later when I would be captain of multiple varsity teams at Dalton.
