The Elisabeth Morrow School, a coeducational day school serving students age 2 through grade 8, was founded in the 1930’s as the “Little School,” by Smith College classmates Elisabeth Morrow and Connie Chilton. In their quest to start a school for young children, these passionate educators traveled the world studying with pioneers such as Maria Montessori and John Dewey. More than 85 years later, the School, on the site of the former Morrow family estate, occupies a beautiful 14-acre setting, which includes nature trails, a brook, and many forms of wildlife. The School educates 430 students from over 50 different towns in Bergen, Hudson, and Union counties in New Jersey and from Manhattan, the Bronx, and Rockland counties in New York. The students speak over 20 home languages, mirroring the demographics of the area in which the School is located.
The School has recently completed a strategic planning process that will guide the priorities for the next five years. The Elisabeth Morrow School's shared purpose is to provide exemplary academics and character development in a diverse and inclusive child-centered community, inspiring students to become curious scholars, ethical leaders, and global citizens.
