East Woods School|
31 Yellow Cote Drive
Oyster Bay, NY
For 70 years, East Woods has been committed to fostering strength of character and academic excellence. We pride ourselves on developing and encouraging creativity, intellectual curiosity, and a lifelong passion for learning.
Our nurturing community is made up of 230 students in Pre-Nursery through Eighth Grade from more than 25 local communities. At East Woods, we celebrate the differences among us, and we are committed to lead through citizenship and service to others.
An East Woods education begins the moment our students walk up the front steps of the school and are greeted with a handshake and a smile by our Head of School. This small but vital interaction not only warmly welcomes our students into our school, but also teaches them the importance of making connections with those around them.
We are a small school by design.
Our low student-to-teacher ratio allows for individualized attention and differentiated instruction. Our size allows each student to have the opportunity to lead, to contribute and to “stand out” in one way or another. We have a clear understanding of who we are and our teachers and administrators truly understand who your child is…and could become.
We are a supportive, family-centered learning community that is as nurturing as it is rigorous.
The East Woods School is housed in a former private residence, and that sense of home permeates everything we do, from our family-style lunches that blend students and faculty across grades, to our weekly all-school Friday Morning Assemblies.
Our curriculum is created to challenge our students, and the benefits of our demanding programs are evident not only in our student test scores – which are well above the national average – but in the ease with which our students transition from East Woods to their secondary school of choice.
We are committed to developing the whole child.
Character development and community service are heavily stressed in all grades. Our students actively participate in community service projects throughout the year. Through literature, class discussions, and hands on activities, the children are able to grasp the meaning of these concepts and incorporate them into their lives.
While we are proud of our rigorous core academic curriculum, we are equally as proud of our enhanced curriculum, which provides our students with consistent and meaningful exposure to visual arts, performing arts, music, technology and physical education.
We believe in the journey and the destination.
The journey from Pre-Nursery through the Eighth Grade provides our students with a foundation of essential learning skills, a life of community involvement and good character development. Our students learn to independently follow their passion. They discover their own answers, and to become true citizens of the world.
Our graduates enter secondary school as curious, confident and conscientious students who are equipped to excel in the classroom and are eager to contribute as caring citizens of their school and broader communities.
