“I have given the School the very
best I could find. I have put into it my belief in the old education and
my trust and hope for the new.”
An intrinsic part of the school since the beginning, the 4 C’s, (cooperation, consideration, compassion and courtesy) emphasize the importance of respecting others and learning to be active members of the community.
At Elisabeth Morrow, every student matters. Our low student/teacher ratio and commitment to the individual allows us to focus on the developmental, educational and emotional needs of each child.
There’s more to learning than desks, textbooks and blackboards. At Elisabeth Morrow, we integrate structured play-based activities as part of the curriculum as this enhances the development of physical fitness, motor skills, social relationships and imagination.
In our daily life at school, we have high expectations of students. Our academically rigorous program fosters lifelong learners with a diverse and comprehensive curriculum that includes the expectation that students come prepared for the school day
and conduct themselves appropriately
. We are proud of our annual list of schools that our graduates attend. Elisabeth Morrow students gain admission to some of the finest high schools (and eventually colleges) in our region and nation.
We live in
a hands-on world and at Elisabeth Morrow, we are committed to providing
significant learning experiences that enhance the curriculum and take children
beyond the classroom.
With our youngest students, we start early with
keyboarding and navigation; meanwhile, our older students have learned to use
virtual worlds and video conferencing to communicate with other students and
teachers around the world. Our priority is to empower our
students with the technological skills they will need to excel at the next
A 21st Century education must focus on the environmental issues that impact our world. On our fourteen acre campus, students have opportunities to garden, compost, recycle, maintain woodlands, conduct field research, observe wildlife, track weather data and collect specimens in our running brook. Building a sense of respect, responsibility and stewardship for the Earth is a priority at our School.
