The Birch Wathen Lenox School

 
The Birch Wathen Lenox School is built upon a tradition of academic excellence. We believe, above all, that our students must know how to think, how to analyze, how to synthesize, and how to communicate their ideas. So, we emphasize the development of writing and critical skills across the curriculum - in Science, Mathematics, History, English, Foreign Language and Art.

The Birch Wathen Lenox School
Outstanding teachers work at every independent school in New York City. They have earned their degrees from the finest institutions in the country, and they teach because of their love of the profession. In this regard, the instructors at Birch Wathen Lenox are no different. However, as our teachers share a deep commitment to this School's singular mission, they succeed in offering a rigorous and traditional education without ever losing sight of the individual. Our teachers foster the creative and personal growth of their students while setting the highest academic standards. They emphasize both group work and personal achievement in and out of the classroom. They attend to the student and the citizen, preparing each member of the community for success in any environment.
Students study a wide range of subjects, and explore each subject in depth, through lectures, experiments, fieldwork, research and discussions.
To support its academics the Birch Wathen Lenox School maintains a newly renovated building that houses a gymnasium, auditorium, science labs, art studios, performing arts center, a library with over 20,000 volumes and a center for learning and technology.
Revitalized Food Service:
This year our food service provider, “Cater to You,” will be presenting us with several exciting new lunchtime options. We can expect a state-of-the-art salad bar with expanded offerings, including many additional items, more vegetables and fruits, as well as an option for hot grilled panini sandwiches. The lunch options will be more nutritious and more appealing to a wide variety of palates. We remain committed to our “nut aware” policy notwithstanding the new menu choices. We look forward to late October, when all of these changes will go into effect.
Enrollment:
Incredibly, we received over 600 applications for Kindergarten for 2008-2009, the largest pool of applicants in BWL’s history. We admitted close to 11% of those who applied, making BWL one of the most selective independent schools in the country. The Kindergarten class, totaling 48 students, is larger than any of our previous Kindergarten classes, with students coming to BWL from 28 different early childhood schools. We are very proud and happy to have such a diverse and talented group. To accommodate the size of this class, the children will be housed in two large rooms on the tenth floor, with six teachers assigned to the grade. The Kindergarten rooms are newly furnished and are well equipped to meet the needs of our students. We look forward to welcoming so many new families to BWL.
