The Cathedral School of St. John the Divine
- Private School
- New York, NY
Works Here: A very tight-knit, welcoming community. Truly at the cutting edge of equity, diversity, and inclusion for independent schools. There are clubs and identity affinity groups that meet during lunch for students. There is an identity curriculum in the lower school.
Assemblies emphasize core values of school.
Almost 100% of students in 5th-8th grade play a school sport.
Students have lots of opportunities to lead and impact the school.
Academics are rigorous, but with lots of built in supports. For example, 3-4 times per week teachers have "office hours" while students have study hall.
Parents are involved. Teachers are responsive. Students go on to top independent and public high schools (e.g. Brearley, Dalton, Riverdale, Trinity, Spence, Packer, Choate Rosemary, Loomis Chaffee, Friends, Sacred Heart, Bronx Science etc.)
