The college preparatory curriculum at this small school provides students with a firm grounding in the liberal arts, with emphasis placed upon the humanities, the sciences and the arts. In the lower school (grades K-3, at the 76th Street campus), children develop basic academic skills through an interdisciplinary program that enables them to engage in problem solving and creative thinking. Foreign language study and the integrated use of technology both begin in kindergarten. During the middle school years (grades 4-8), girls continue to build their analytical thinking and study skills through a content-rich curriculum that also prepares them for advanced work in the traditional disciplines. Upper schoolers (grades 9-12), who choose from a range of Advanced Placement and elective offerings, take four or five academic courses per year, as well as one or two arts classes. Hewitt issues laptop computers to upper school students for classroom use. A weeklong interim program in January features approximately a dozen academic and cultural electives for middle and upper school students. Hewitt's Upper East Side location permits students and faculty to make extensive use of the city's museums, parks, galleries and theaters. Girls satisfy the following community service requirements: 10 hours annually in grades 4-8, 20 hours per year in grades 9-12.
