The Elisabeth Morrow School

The Elisabeth Morrow School, a coeducational day school serving students age 3 through grade 8, was founded in the 1930’s as the “Little School,” by Smith College classmates Elisabeth Morrow and Connie Chilton. In their quest to start a school for young children, these passionate educators traveled the world studying with pioneers such as Maria Montessori and John Dewey. According to Elisabeth, this new school would include a balance of “faith in the old education and trust in the new” in an environment of “individuals working toward a common purpose”. On July 1, 2019, Dr. Maureen Fonseca became EMS’ seventh Head of School.

Almost 90 years later, the School, on the site of the former Morrow family estate, occupies a beautiful 14-acre setting, which includes nature trails, a brook, and many forms of wildlife. The School educates 430 students from over 50 different towns in Bergen, Hudson, and Union counties in New Jersey and from Manhattan, the Bronx, and Rockland counties in New York. The students speak over 20 home languages, mirroring the demographics of the area in which the School is located. The School will be celebrating its 90th anniversary in the fall of 2020.

Dedicated to providing an exemplary academic program and a transformative student experience, the school offers cutting-edge programming in STEM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) while the humanities programs allow students to explore themselves and the world through multiple perspectives. The nationally renowned instrumental music program allows every third through sixth grade student to practice an instrument four times a week. The School’s commitment to social and emotional learning, as well as the emphasis on leadership and character education through the 4 C’s, ensure that students have a holistic and child-centered experience through their years at the School.

A full search description will be posted the week of January 13, 2020.
