We all have places that, from the first time we walk through the door, feel like home. What makes these places special is that they are filled with people who truly see us and believe in us, people who understand that we are infinitely capable and help us surpass what we thought possible. The ability of teachers to engage students in learning and nurture their inner drive to explore deeply and broadly is regularly described by parents, students, faculty and staff as the most important factor in making The Elisabeth Morrow School in Englewood, New Jersey a one-of-a-kind experience for students grades PreK - 8. But don’t take their word for it, visit the school in November and find out for yourself.
Mark your calendar for an Open House on Sunday, November 6th from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Visit the campus, take a tour, and hear presentations from admissions representatives, school leadership, and current students. Then stay for the annual EMS Book Fair and Storytelling Festival. This beloved tradition, planned by the Parents Association, is fun for the whole family – children are welcome and encouraged to attend.
On Friday, November 11th from 3:10 p.m. – 4:40 p.m. get your prospective middle school student (grades 4-7) ready to Design with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics). Students will learn more about the EMS STEAM curriculum by participating in a faculty-led project in an innovative EMS Design Lab. Participants will explore real-world topics in a hands-on studio environment, solving complex challenges using creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration, while at the same time, getting an inside look at the way EMS students learn every day.
Then, start jotting down your list of questions. You’re invited to a virtual Parent Panel on Thursday, November 17th from 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Current parents and caregivers will be online to meet with prospective families, answer questions, and share their experiences at The Elisabeth Morrow School.
The Elisabeth Morrow School is located on 14 acres of certified wildlife habitat in Englewood, New Jersey. Guided by the 4 Cs (courtesy, consideration, cooperation, and compassion), the faculty, staff, students, and families of EMS work hard to cultivate good character, an authentically global perspective, and an environment that nurtures each child’s unique spark and innate creativity. At EMS, the values taught at home are reinforced at school and the focus is on developing each child socially, emotionally and cognitively.
The foundation of an EMS education is a personalized approach to learning that incorporates a student’s individual readiness, learning profile, and interests as it encourages students to think deeply and critically within an academically challenging curriculum. Elisabeth Morrow teachers are compassionate, driven and caring. EMS graduates tell us that they didn’t realize how special Elisabeth Morrow was until they experienced learning in other settings. The feedback from former students and secondary school admissions offices is that EMS students are well-prepared for the demands of the selective college prep schools they attend after EMS graduation.
The Elisabeth Morrow School invites you to visit and experience the difference for yourself.
