Our our open learning spaces were intentionally designed to maximize opportunities for hands-on projects and inquiry. Our approach to space allows us to forge strong connections: with one another, across disciplines, and to the world beyond our classroom walls.
Calhoun's main building on West End Avenue and 81st Street serves students in 3rd-12th grades. Our open classrooms were built to facilitate dynamic inquiry and discovery. Many of Calhoun’s classes are taught seminar-style, with students sitting around a table debating, discussing, and sharing ideas with one another. Teachers are in tune with the learning styles of the students, and our classrooms are flexible enough to meet the needs of all of our students in the way that they learn best.
The Robert L. Beir Lower School building is a five-story townhouse on West 74th Street that serves students in our 3's-2nd grade programs. Children enjoy large, bright classrooms, a STEAM Discovery Lab, library, theater/auditorium and music room. An outdoor terrace and gym provide Little Calhouners with ample space for physical education classes and recreation. Students also frequent Central Park and Riverside Park, both within walking distance.
