    Our son attended Browning from K-12 and is now in college. Browning remains our favorite place in all of NYC. The combination of challenge and nurture was unparalleled. Everyone who works at the school cares deeply about the students and their success, both academically and personally. The transition to college has been seamless due to years of preparation. The family community is kind, inclusive, and passionate. I can't imagine sending our son to any other school. What a privilege it was!

    My son has been attending The Browning School for two(2) years. It was absolutely the BEST decision we could've made for him! We toured about 14 private K-5, K-9, & K-12 schools before setting our hearts on Browning. Although there are other schools in NY that are ranked higher on NICHE, I strongly believe those other schools do not compare to The Browning School. Our son is growing into not only a scholar but a very empathic gentleman. Their curriculum combines tradition mixed with progressive & innovative STEM lessons. It truly is the ideal school for any young male in the New York area.
    The Browning School is primarily focused on a sense of personal fulfillment, academic excellence, and deep sense of community that is unmatched across NYC. Each teacher and student is hand-picked from an array of talented individuals who seek entrance into Browning. While the school deals with many problems akin to its sister/brother schools, Browning has learned to adapt and change with the times as well as keep its beloved traditions. The Browning School seamlessly weaves itself into the lives of each student, encouraging them to pursue their interests academically, athletically, and artistically. Each student is given countless opportunities to grow and take risks, but is not forced into uncomfortable situations. Each Browning Student is encouraged to have an open mind and an open heart every day and to be a welcome and caring member of the community.
