Elisabeth Morrow School to Host Open House, 1/15
The Elisabeth Morrow School, a threes through eighth grade country day school in Englewood, New Jersey, is hosting an open house on Wednesday, January 15, 2014. The program, starting at 9 a.m., will feature remarks from the Head of School and a panel discussion with members of the Class of 2014. After the presentation, families are invited see the classrooms and to tour the 14-acre campus that includes technology labs, science labs, performance spaces, libraries, playing field, two gymnasiums, working gardens and nature trails.
"We believe that there's no better way for families to understand all that Elisabeth Morrow has to offer than by seeing the school in action and listening to our eighth graders talk about their experience here," says Blair Talcott Orloff, Director of Admissions and Financial Aid. "Since we are in a residential neighborhood, parents are often surprised to see how expansive the campus is, and just how well it meets the needs of children, both academically and physically." She adds that busing is available from New York City and many parts of Bergen County and more than 70 communities are now represented in the student population.
"At Elisabeth Morrow we have intentionally created an environment that meets the needs of students at all stages of childhood---from three-year-olds to emerging adolescents," says Aaron Cooper, Head of School. "Our experienced teachers and our challenging curriculum ensure that as children mature, they are offered many opportunities discover their passions and become leaders. That is what families see when our eighth graders speak."
