From The Nightingale-Bamford School

Nightingale inspires girls to go beyond barriers.

At Nightingale, students become joyful learners who have the intellectual depth and the courage to be critical thinkers, compassionate citizens, and agents of their own lives; advancing equity for the betterment of all.

To achieve this mission and vision, we will educate girls’ minds and hearts by infusing their lives with meaningful relationships; teaching them to value difference as a source of strength and means of growth; and empowering them to question the status quo with confidence, empathy, resilience, and reason.

From Lower School, where students learn to think independently, to the self-discovery of Middle School, to the in-depth liberal arts curriculum with an emphasis on global citizenship in the Upper School, we seek to educate both mind and heart.
