The Long Ridge Experience
With a unique focus on early childhood and elementary education, The Long Ridge School is a warm, joyful environment where students excel through progressive, inquiry-based, personalized learning. When you visit our expansive, idyllic campus, you’ll find an inclusive community where teachers, students, and parents of all backgrounds work together to guide children toward becoming compassionate global citizens. Our teachers nurture each child’s strengths and interests—instilling confidence and leadership skills; fostering academic, social, and emotional development; and collaboratively building for each student the foundation for a fulfilling future.
Outdoor Learning is a Key Element in a Long Ridge Education
Located in Stamford, CT, the woods, fields, wetlands, playgrounds, athletic fields, and organic garden on our 14-acre campus constitute a varied and vibrant outdoor classroom. Long Ridge School students spend time each day outdoors exploring and imagining together. We offer a variety of classes that use different areas of the campus for studying the natural world, conducting investigations, playing games, and more. Along with early childhood and elementary programs, we offer summer day camp to help students continuously learn!
