Welcome to The Elisabeth Morrow School!

Thank you for your interest in The Elisabeth Morrow School. Please take time to explore our website. I encourage you to join us on a 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 eighth grade.  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, technology labs, gymnasiums, science labs, libraries, an athletic field, playgrounds and a certified wildlife habitat with nature trails, running brook, forest, and working gardens. The School offers child care, after school programs, and a summer and school break camps among its many auxiliary programs.

The experienced and dedicated faculty and extensive facilities foster academic excellence and intellectual curiosity through a comprehensive curriculum focuses on the intellectual, social and character development of children. Students develop a passion for learning and enjoy a strong sense of community based upon our 4 C's -- cooperation, consideration, compassion and courtesy.
