Our Mission

The Muscota New School believes all children come to school with a desire to make sense of the world. Our school provides a safe, nuturing environment in which children can experiment, reflect, develop understandings, make connections and become active participants in their own learning.

The Muscota New wchool is committed to mirroring the diversity of the community within our classes, both in student population and teaching staff. We believe this combination of emphasis on the individual and responsibility to the families of northern Manhattan, brings together the most positive aspects of a community-based school of choice.
