Welcome to the Neighborhood School!

The Neighborhood School believes children thrive best when we build on their strengths and provide them with a safe and nurturing environment.  We have rooted our practices and policies in anti-bias and anti-racist work that involves the entire school community.  Our interdisciplinary, inquiry-based curriculum encompasses children’s interests and is responsive to each child’s individual needs.  We collaborate with families in order to foster a community that is supportive of the whole child.  School-wide policies and practices are formed collaboratively and dynamically to provide a cohesive and thoughtful environment for our community.

    Dear Families,

    At TNS, we believe that children learn best through first-hand experiences with people, materials, and places; that is why trips are such an important part of our school’s curriculum.  One TNS “milestone” field trip is going to overnight camp, and our 4th and 5th graders will go this week!  This year’s three-day, two-night environmental camping trip will take place at the Taconic Outdoor Education Center (TOEC) in Fahnestock State Park, Putnam County, New York.  Activities include hiking and maple sugaring. On the way up, they will stop at the Stony Kill Farm for some outdoor educational activities, including a visit with their barn animals. This is our first overnight trip since COVID, and we are all so excited!  I’ll be sure to share pictures so your kids can start getting excited for when they get to go!

    This Friday is a half-day.  Dismissal is at 11:45 a.m.



About Us

We believe children learn by making sense of their world and experiences. We have seen that they learn best through first-hand experiences with people, materials, and places. This is why trips are an important part of the curriculum, along with the use of concrete materials, dramatizations, and simulations as ways for children to recreate the themes and concepts they are studying.
