Grade 2

Grade 2 students become more active and independent as learners, as they master skills learned in lower grades. They start to build a strong foundation for future intellectual and creative pursuits. Their curiosity is engaged with numerous field trips in New York City.

A supportive and engaging learning environment, Grade 2 students learn to care about each other and members of the larger school community.

Grade 2 offers the Primary Years Program of the International Baccalaureate curriculum. In this student-centered curriculum, learning is inquiry-based, ensuring that each student’s strengths and interests are at the forefront of the learning experience.

Students may study Spanish, French, or Mandarin. Additional language offerings and Mother Tongue language classes are available upon request.
