About Manhattan Country School:

When Manhattan Country School opened in 1966, it did so with the hope that it would be a new model for education based on diversity. At a time when integrated private schools were a rarity, Manhattan Country School was largely an experiment. Today MCS is a school with economically and racially balanced enrollment, an exemplary social justice curriculum and a working farm in the Catskill Mountains where students learn about sustainable living through experience. In a country where 20% of the people under 25 are multi-racial and where sustainability is an increasing concern, MCS’ enrollment and curriculum is no longer a Utopian ideal, but a reflection of the diversity, concerns and potential of the people of the United States today.
