Welcome to The Elisabeth Morrow School!
Thank you for your interest in The Elisabeth Morrow School. I hope you enjoy exploring our website, but I encourage you to join us on a tour or open house so that you can see for yourself what a special place this is.
Located on 14 acres in Englewood, New Jersey, just nine miles from New York City, our school offers a unique, comprehensive and rigorous educational experience to its students. We are one of the most diverse independent schools in the country, with 52% students of color, and our bucolic campus includes not just academic buildings, technology labs, gymnasiums, an athletic field and science labs but also a certified wildlife habitat with nature trails and working gardens.
Our experienced and dedicated faculty engage our students' intellectual curiosity and help them develops lifelong passions through a curriculum focused on the intellectual, social and emotional development of children through all of the stages of childhood. Students develop a love for learning and enjoy a strong sense of community with their peers based upon our 4 C's -- courtesy, cooperation, consideration and compassion --- which form the foundation of our character education program.
Our diverse community includes families from over 50 towns in 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.
We look forward to meeting you, learning about your children and introducing you to our community. Please come visit us soon!
