Nightingale-Bamford School

20 E 92nd St, New York, NY 10128

Founded by Frances N. Nightingale and Maya Stevens Bamford, the school offers a classical college preparatory program to girls of varied backgrounds and interests. In a small-class setting, the school combines academics with the arts, athletics, leadership opportunities, clubs and activities, and community service. The arts curriculum includes photography, drama, dance, music and studio art. An interdisciplinary visual education curriculum and the program in dramatic literature make use of New York's museum resources and theatrical productions. Students gain an introduction to Spanish, French and Mandarin in grade 3, then commence Latin study in grade 6. Math and science offerings include a science seminar, a summer biotechnology session and an eighth grade research trip to Costa Rica. Social service programming is part of the curriculum in all three school divisions, and upper school students must commit to a yearlong service project within the community. Among Nightingale's enrichment opportunities are off-campus events, individual student projects, and academic exchanges through the city's inter-school consortium of eight schools. Children in grades K-4 may participate in a coed after-school program.
