Hallo, Manhattan: Neue Privatschule eröffnet auf der UWS, Herbst 2017

Tue April 18th, 2017 by Gabi

Between Montessori, Waldorf, progressive, traditional, child-led and more, it seems like parents themselves are expected to have a degree in education to understand and navigate the educational options available to their child, and NYC private school admissions.

BASIS Independent Manhattan is a new K-8 option opening Fall 2017 on the Upper West Side. In what will be the fifth campus, BASIS Independent Schools take the guess-work out of what good education looks like. With a clear focus on readying students for the skills they need to excel in their future pursuits, BASIS Independent Manhattan provides an unparalleled foundation in all academic disciplines, along with critical skills like collaborative problem-solving, connection with others, self-direction, and empathy.
