Welcome

Dear Families,

Thank you for visiting The Mandelstam School website. By exploring our site, you only just begin to achieve an understanding of the unique educational experience The Mandelstam School offers.  

The Mandelstam School is based on a dynamic triad of multi-faceted, interrelated programs. It begins with a strong foundation in academics and is complemented by the arts and athletics. Through small classes and individual attention, we provide a program to best meet the needs of each student. Our innovative curriculum prepares students for a future as lifelong learners by establishing a solid foundation in reading, writing, critical thinking, mathematical computation and problem solving.

Additionally, our dynamic athletic, fine arts, and theater programs complete our exceptional academic curriculum, educating the whole child. The pride and confidence our students display is a direct correlation to their accomplishments in the classroom, gymnasium and theater.

I invite you to visit our School in person, as this is the only way to actually feel the welcoming, family community our school imparts. A walk through our campus will show you how our School is a place unlike any other.
