Bank Street touts itself as a "school within a college." Located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan near Columbia University, it has two divisions: the School for Children, which serves students from nursery (ages 3 and 4) through 8th grade, and the Graduate School, which trains adults to teach and work all over the world.
According to the website, "The combination of the Graduate School and the School for Children in the same setting creates a unique synergy between children and teachers."
The children's division focuses on the whole child by creating curriculum that fosters his/her emotional, social, physical and intellectual well-being. Students partake in social studies, emergent literacy, science, Spanish, music and arts classes, to name a few, while simultaneously acting as a demonstration school for the adult college.
If $32,000 sounds high, the school actually lowered the cost from the year prior. For the 2017-2018 school year, the full-day nursery program was $44,150.
