The Mandell School:
Mandell School is a co-educational institution for Toddlers through the Eighth Grade located on the Upper West Side, since 1939. We are committed to providing a nurturing educational environment for children and their families, which through intellectual stimulation and emotional support, enable them to become responsible, active citizens of the world. Mandell School curriculum is well balanced, exceptionally rigorous, yet flexible enough to allow for a range of leaning styles. Mandell uses both traditional and progressive approaches to teaching, incorporating use of manipulatives, collaboration and hands on experiential learning.
The Mandell School for Toddlers provides children, two years of age, with an educational environment that is designed to nurture their physical and developmental needs. As such, Mandell's Toddler programs offer a fun and stimulating environment that functions as a gentle transition from home to school. This is not a separation mandatory program. Adult inclusion in the classroom is optional. We do, however, encourage parents to allow their child independence when they are ready. Through the year, we work on a one-on-one basis to guide parents through toilet training, separation and other early childhood issues that may arise.
Our curriculum centers on monthly themes with related activities such as specific daily projects, songs and special events. In addition, our 95th Street facility includes an indoor gym space which the children use for "outdoor" play, structured movement and assessment. Our goal is to provide a well rounded experiential environment for your child that enhances their emotional, physical and intellectual development. Mandell School for Toddlers offers a two half-day per week program for two year olds with both morning and afternoon session available. The morning session meets from 8:45 am to 10:45 am and the afternoon from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm. Both sessions are on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Mandell School for Toddlers offers a three half-day per week program for older 2 and very young 3 year olds. Both morning and afternoon sessions are available. The morning session meets from 8:45 am to 11:15 am and the afternoon session meets from 12:30 pm to 3:00 pm. Both Sessions are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Junior Kindergarten is the second year of "Pre-Kindergarten" prior to Kindergarten for those late summer and fall birthday children who have spent a year in Pre-Kindergarten I. Independent decision making, collaborative learning and the fostering of leadership skills are again essential to the functioning of this class. As the class between Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten, the curriculum and expectations change rapidly during the course of the year.
Kindergarten students at Mandell continue to develop and solidify their independent decision making, collaborative learning and leadership skills through the exploration of themselves, their newly assembled peer group and the families that comprise the community of their school. Independent choice-time, literacy creative writing, science, math and technology are all part of the students' daily routine.
This is accomplished through both integrated thematic units of study and independent "mini-lessons". Throughout the year each student is encouraged to participate in the assessment of their development and to provide input to their teachers in the assembly of their ongoing "portfolio" of work, fostering self-assessment as a natural extension of their school experience.
1st Grade - 4th Grade:
The Elementary Program will continue Mandell’s commitment to academic excellence and good citizenship. These students will develop solid foundations in both literacy and numeracy and will be supported as they gain confidence in their abilities as increasingly independent active learners. Through small group and individualized work, students will master early academic skills and become effective readers, problem solvers, and communicators.
Weekly experiences in Music, Wellness/Athletics, Library, Science, Art, Computers, American Sign Language, Spanish and French will expand the students’ understanding of themselves and the world around them. Conflict resolution and community building skills will be presented and modeled throughout each grade in age-appropriate ways. Reading and math specialists will be available to provide both enrichment and support for all students.
5th Grade - 8th Grade:
Students in the Preparatory Division will be required in grade five to begin to assume increasing levels of independent responsibility for their learning. Each student will be assigned a class advisor who will support them both individually and as part of small groups as they begin to make individual section and subject choices. With the introduction of formalized subjects including English, Math, History, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Computer Science, and Research Skills, students will continue to develop effective reading, writing, and analytical skills with specialized teachers for each subject.
This will continue as well in more familiar subjects such as Music, Fine Arts, Foreign Languages and Wellness/Athletics. Group and individualized assignments will be designed to foster each student’s skills and interests. Conflict resolution skills will continue to be presented, modeled and fostered. Reading and math specialists will also be available to provide enrichment and support as determined by the students, their advisors and their families.
At the end of the school day Mandell students are invited to participate in one or more of our Firefly Program workshops. These workshops are organized in six one-hour or two-hour sessions, Monday through Friday, and span a six-week period during each fall, winter and spring term. Most are limited to no more than eight children, however, the enrollment may be expanded for older groups.
We offer exciting summer camps. Children spend most of the time in their classroom in supervised structured free play. They also participate in special science, art, crafts, music and drama classes throughout the week.
