For over 230 years, The 山 学校 纽约 has been a 社区 brought together by our shared values – knowing girls can.

其中的一个 独特的 aspects of an all-girls education at The 山 is the sense of belonging that each girl experiences. Our girls are welcomed into a 友好的积极的, 和 有爱心的 社区Past 和 present 山 girls often comment on the 支持 atmosphere; ‘everyone looks out for each other,’ ‘My friends are wonderfully 支持.’ By being part of a 社区 of 志趣相投的 individuals, our girls feel a sense of connection to the 学校 c社区所, 他们觉得 known 和 that 他们 属于. 女孩 are empowered to pursue their ambitions 和 support others.  

We are proud to be a small s公立学校 社区 that allows us to place great emphasis on girls getting to know one another across the whole 学校. This allows girls to broaden their friendships 和 提供了 role models for the younger years. Together 他们 参与 in regular meetings 和 a range of activities 和 events including peer mentoring, house activities, 体育运动, 和 fundraising 倡议 


Influenced by our Quaker ethos, we are a 社区 in which unlimited kindness 和 respectful relationships are the foundation of our 学校 ethos. 

Our 独特的 collaborative 社区 values, cares for 和 respects every individual. It is a safe place for girls to try new things, ‘live adventurously’ 和 discover their inner confidence 山 girls know 和 celebrate who 他们 are.  

女孩 are also keenly aware of their relationships with their 社区 和 the wider world. They know the role 他们 can play as a responsible citizen 和 leader 和 他们 want to make a positive contribution to the world around them.

“Everyone always asks what makes The 山 so special? Is it the st和ard of learning, or the facilities or the opportunities? These are all amazing, but I 和 many others will consistently answer with the same thing, to the extent it has become a bit of a cliche of sorts, that it is our 社区 that makes The 山 so special. The 山’s 社区 is warm 和 welcoming, 和 due to its small size, no girl 感觉 alone or unsupported; there is an 活动 feeling of being part of a family.” College Pupil, who joined The 山 age 3. 

The 山 Community extends beyond the pupils 和 staff.
