Dear Prospective Applicant Family,
We are delighted you have taken an interest in learning more about The Kew-Forest School.  Embodying the rich diversity of the Queens community, our families and staff collectively represent 70+ nationalities and speak 30+ languages.  Students are exposed to different perspectives, backgrounds, and cultures simply by getting to know their peers and teachers as well as through immersion in an inclusive curriculum.  At Kew-Forest, you will find that our community nurtures lifelong learners, our educators inspire young people, and our students support each other.
Our small size allows us to be nimble in response to individual student needs as well as to challenges faced in education today.  While all learning is taking place on campus in-person for the 2021-22 school year, we are poised to transition to a remote learning platform if the need arises bringing to bear all of the experience gained in the past 18 months.
With our 2021-22 Return-to-School Plan, we have implemented all necessary safety precautions to ensure our students can safely return to an in-person, stimulating, and engaging school experience.  As the school year progresses, we will closely monitor and respond to all city and statewide ordinances to protect the well-being and best interests of our entire learning community.
For those preparing to embark on the 2022-23 admissions cycle, we invite you to join us this fall at any of our virtual or on-campus events. We have designed a range of formats so you can tailor your engagement with us in a way that suits your family.
I look forward to getting to know you in the days and weeks ahead and to show you what our close-knit community has to offer.
