About The Nightingale-Bamford School

Elementary, Middle, High School

Nightingale is a K-12 all-girls school located on the upper east side of Manhattan, with approximately 690 students in one schoolhouse. Our vision is for Nightingale students to be joyful learners who have the intellectual depth and the courage to be critical thinkers, compassionate citizens, and agents of their own lives; in doing so, we advance equity for the betterment of all. Central to our mission is challenging our students to achieve academic excellence within a community that has strong relationships at its core. We value difference as a source of strength and means of growth, empowering our students to question the status quo with confidence, empathy, resilience, and reason.

COVID-19 Admission Adjustments

How are you adjusting your admission process? At this point, we are planning on an all virtual fall admissions process.

Are you conducting tours/open houses? All of our events and activities will be offered virtually.

Are both parents expected to attend tours/presentations? no

What is expected of families? We highly encourage families to participate in a virtual family interview, with the parents/guardians interviewed separately from the child. Participants may join the interview from different locations.
