The Nightingale-Bamford School
Founded by two bold, visionary entrepreneurs in 1920, The Nightingale-Bamford School gives girls from diverse backgrounds a rigorous college preparatory education. The school is widely recognized as one of the top girls’ schools in the country. There are currently 655 students enrolled in the school (Lower School 223; Middle School 198 and Upper School 234). Average class size is 12, student to faculty ratio is 6:1. The school is located on the Upper East Side in Manhattan, in the Carnegie Hill neighborhood, near many museums and Central Park. Eighty full-time faculty members teach in the technologically advanced school house. Nearly all graduates attend four-year, “highly selective” colleges and universities. http://www.nightingale.org
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.
