Welcome to Calhoun

As Manhattan’s open-concept school, we break down barriers and forge instructive connections between students, teachers, and our city, and world at large. Located on the Upper West Side, we have two locations “Little Calhoun” (160 West 74th Street) for our Preschool through 2nd grades and “Big Calhoun” (433 West End Avenue) for our 3rd through 12th grades. 

At Calhoun, all of our students whether in preschool or high school are challenged each and every day to engage deeply on the path to academic mastery. Our faculty inspires students to fully participate in the education process through collaboration, innovation, and experiential learning. In our greater community we also reflect on the various lenses through which we view our students and each other, confronting and preventing bias through our curricula and community programs. We do not view this work as tangential but rather integral to creating a respectful community that is open to learning with and from each other. 

We invite you to connect with our office to learn more about Calhoun. We look forward to meeting you and your children and sharing why Calhoun graduates are equipped with the adaptability, ingenuity, and compassion needed to succeed no matter their chosen path.
