Speyer Legacy School, an elementary and middle school in Manhattan for advanced learners, moved to a new location, which was designed by architect Chris Grabé, on the Upper West Side. The school features learning through self-questioned and self-investigated thinking.

Speyer Legacy School, an independent co-educational school for advanced learners, relocated its kindergarten through eighth grade campus from the Society for the Advancement of Judaism building to Ninth Avenue at 59th Street in September. Speyer consists of two schools grouped by grades—lower school for kindergarteners to fifth grade and upper school for sixth through eighth grades. Each grade has two classes, with a maximum size of 20 students and two instructors.

“This is a type of learning environment that will allow [advanced learners] to go at an appropriate pace and keep them challenged, interested, and enthusiastic about school,” says Katherine Trotzuk, the director of admission.

The school aims to have each student develop an ability to engage with real-world challenges while respecting diverse communities through in-depth study and collaborative work. Trotzuk says history and humanity is the overall arch and framework of the education at Speyer Legacy School, and the curriculum incorporates the metacognitive approach—learning through self-questioned and self-investigated thinking—in its curriculum.

The 75,000 square-foot school, which was designed by architect Chris Grabé, has a variety of facilities, including an art room, chess room, science club, library, gym, and cafeteria.
