About A-S

Welcome from the Headmaster

Since its founding in 1883, Allen-Stevenson has been dedicated to providing the very best elementary education for boys, Kindergarten through Ninth Grade, growing up in New York City. Now we are extraordinarily fortunate to have amazing facilities that serve the educational process well. However, our most important resources are human ones: the remarkable faculty and staff who work tirelessly with Allen-Stevenson boys and their families. This personal relationship is the foundation of the A-S community, and it matters most in providing an excellent educational experience.
There are many ways to be a boy. An Allen-Stevenson education helps to foster a boy's natural intellectual curiosity about the world, about himself, and about the various communities of which he is a part. Here joy and delight in learning are matched by the values of hard work, self-discipline, integrity, and good sportsmanship. Just as we honor great teaching, we respect our students as creative, precious individuals within a larger whole. This attitude builds their self-confidence, their love of learning, and their respect for others.
As you consider Allen-Stevenson, we hope that you will share our avid belief that a vigorous curriculum - that thoughtful mix of academics, athletics, and the arts - best educates the whole boy and prepares him for the future. Over time, such experiences truly inspire boys to become scholars and gentlemen.
