Finding A Home At The Elisabeth Morrow School

Something happens when your child lands in a school that is the perfect fit for them. They have the confidence to take risks and try new things. They are curious and open to exploring ideas and concepts. In short, they thrive. Each child is different, and the right educational route for one might not be the right path for another, even within the same family. But finding that place of security and comfort for your child is important. The Elisabeth Morrow School (EMS) strives to be just such a place of learning, innovation, and inspiration.

EMS IS CURRENTLY CELEBRATING 90 YEARS OF EXEMPLARY ACADEMICS AND CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT IN A DIVERSE AND INCLUSIVE CHILD-CENTERED COMMUNITY, AS SET FORTH BY THE VISION, INNOVATION, AND PASSION OF FOUNDER ELISABETH MORROW NEARLY A CENTURY AGO.

A SUCESSFUL YEAR!

With the many uncertainties felt during the past 16 months, EMS developed an unparalleled pandemic response that allowed the school to safely deliver a full academic schedule to its students and provide experiences before and after classes that greatly contribute to the curriculum, including technology, the arts, and athletics and health.

During the 2020–2021 school year, we kept our campus safe and remained open full-time, five days a week from the beginning, while continuing our focus on the development and well-being of each of our students.

“When the pandemic began, we took nothing for granted, and we relied on research to make our student-centered decisions,” says Head of School Dr. Maureen Fonseca. “I’m incredibly proud of our community and how, together, we navigated boldly in the midst of uncharted waters.”
