Serving Stamford, New Canaan, Greenwich, CT, and Beyond
Finding the perfect educational setting for your children is high on most parents’ list. At The Long Ridge School, serving the Stamford, New Canaan, and Greenwich, CT areas, we have been named the “Best Elementary School” in Stamford for 15 years in a row. Our elementary school was founded by a parent and educator who understood that children learn at different rates and in different ways and who wanted to start a school based on that. The school was founded in 1938 with six children and grew into the community that it is today. Classrooms are filled with teachers who dedicate themselves to their students, balancing each child’s individual social, emotional, physical, and creative development.
We offer various programs focusing on early childhood and elementary education. Our 14-acre campus allows teachers to use the outdoor space to their advantage as students are allowed to explore and study the natural surroundings. Our Beginners and Nursery programs inside of our early childhood program help children build their confident sense in a warm and engaging learning environment. Our elementary school students are offered strong programs in language arts, math, science, and social studies and are encouraged to explore, experiment, and test ideas as they learn. We offer multi-age, two-year classrooms and a low student-teacher ratio to help foster meaningful relationships.
