Selecting the right school for your child can seem like a daunting task. In the New York area there are a myriad of schooling choices spanning coeducation and single-sex, K-8 vs. K-12, size of school, and philosophy of education. As families consider their options an important consideration will be whether a traditional or a progressive educational approach is right for a child and family. What do progressive schools have to share about the work they do? Please join us for a panel discussion among Admissions Directors from several area independent schools. Progressive school leaders will share information about their programs and answer frequently asked questions about progressive education.
