The School at Columbia University is an independent K-8 school founded in 2003 with the goal of providing an excellent education to a diverse student body. Our intentional school culture embraces shared beliefs across disciplines and grades, which underlie important values expressed through everyday behaviors and visible symbols throughout our community:
Each year, The School selects one of its four core values to be the year’s theme, and 2016-17 will be the Year of Community. We are an energetic community that consistently strives to learn, to do, to make, to solve, to explore, to educate, to reflect, and to grow in exciting and interesting ways. It is this spirit that will drive the projects and ideas of our upcoming school year together.
