The Nightingale-Bamford School
Founded by two bold, visionary entrepreneurs in 1920, The Nightingale-Bamford School mission is to inspire girls to go beyond barriers. Tied to this mission is a broader vision of students who are joyful learners who have the intellectual depth and courage to be critical thinkers, compassionate citizens, and agents of their own lives. Nightingale educates girls’ minds and hearts and, in so doing, infuses their lives with meaningful relationships, teaching them to value difference as a means of growth, and empowering them to question the status quo with confidence, empathy, resilience and reason.
Nightingale’s commitment to social justice requires that all community members engage actively and thoughtfully in work around diversity, equity and inclusion. We actively encourage applications from candidates with broad and diverse backgrounds.
There are currently 669 students enrolled in the school. Average class size is 12, student to faculty ratio is 6:1. The school is located on the Upper East Side in Manhattan near many museums and Central Park. Students come from throughout New York City, Westchester, and New Jersey.
