The School House

The School House is a private, nonprofit, pre-K-through-grade-5 school on Long Island with an integrated, hands-on curriculum (501c3 pending).

TSH and the new American Emergent Curriculum (AEC) have a simple mission—to connect what they know works in education with what everyone loves about traditional American schools. Instead of relying on just one pedagogy or one set of standards, The School House thoughtfully combines the most effective ways of learning—an academic Montessori foundation, project-based learning, critical thinking, group dialogue, and Art & Design Studio (Reggio-Emilia)—with the things we all grew up with and loved in pubic school—access to great sports programs, performing arts, civics, and a lot of economic diversity. The result is a highly integrated curriculum serving a community of learners who thrive not just academically but emotionally, socially, and physically in the most crucial time of their young lives, 3-10 years old.
