Alexander Robertson School, established in 1789, is a co-educational independent school serving students in Junior-Kindergarten through 5th Grade.
ARS combines a traditional daily structure of scheduled academics and enrichment classes presented within an innovative, creative and fun teaching framework. We emphasize excellence in academics while placing equal emphasis on exposing children to the arts, ethics and physical education. We teach children to think critically, explore their creativity, and reason logically, stressing the value of both individual learning and collaboration.
"Alexander Robertson School is a gem of a school comprised of happy children, caring teachers, involved parents and a strong leadership."
"My daughter has never been happier to be in school!"
"Alexander Robertson School is a hidden treasure in the sea of school options available to families here in [NY] city. It's unassuming presence and small class size are just a few of this school's invaluable characteristics. The diversity reflected in both the classrooms, teachers, and administration representing the collective rainbow of NYC is an exceptional model that I wish was not such a rarity to encounter."
"Alexander Robertson School has the most talented, dedicated teachers I've encountered. The small class sizes allow for plenty of individualized attention, which has been such an advantage for my children."
