Welcome to The Elisabeth Morrow School!
Thank you for your interest in The Elisabeth Morrow School. Please take time to explore the information we have on our website. I encourage you to join us on a private tour, an open house or an informational evening, which are held throughout the year. Seeing the students and teachers in action will help you understand what a special place this is.
Established in 1930 in the New York metropolitan area, The Elisabeth Morrow School is an independent country day school that provides a coeducational program for students from age three through grade eight. For over eighty years, The Elisabeth Morrow School has offered a unique, comprehensive and rigorous educational experience to its students. Located on fourteen acres in Englewood, New Jersey, the campus includes six buildings, four state-of-the art computer labs, two gymnasiums, three science labs, three libraries containing over 30,000 volumes, an athletic field, a certified wildlife habitat with nature trails, running brook, forest, working gardens and three playgrounds.
The experienced and dedicated faculty and extensive facilities foster academic excellence and intellectual curiosity. The comprehensive curriculum focuses on the intellectual, social and character development of children. Students develop a passion for learning in the child-centered program that is encompassed by a strong sense of community among students, teachers, families and staff. Each child is greeted personally with a handshake in the morning upon arrival. The School offers child care, after school programs, and a six-week summer program among its many auxiliary programs.
Located nine miles from Manhattan’s Upper West Side, The Elisabeth
Morrow School’s community includes families from Bergen, Rockland,
Passaic, Morris, Essex, Union, and Hudson Counties as well as New York
City. School bus transportation is available from most parts of the area.
