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 over 70 nationalities and speak over 30 heritage 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 one another.
Our intentionally small size means that your child will be known deeply, cared for as an individual, and challenged to be their best self. Students enjoy close relationships with their peers and with the adults who form part of the school community. Within a safe and nurturing environment, students take risks, explore multiple interests, and grow into resilient and resourceful learners ready for promising futures!

Whether you are looking for a school for this coming September or getting started on admission for the 2024-2025 school year, we are here to answer your questions and share our love of Kew-Forest with you.
I look forward to getting to know you and to showing you all that our close-knit community has to offer.
