Welcome to Caedmon
Recognizing the natural curiosity and sense of wonder in every student, The Caedmon School is a Montessori-inspired program for toddlers through Fifth grade.
Located on East 80th Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, a Caedmon student delights in challenge, immersed in community that values care and empathy. Our graduates go on to excel in the finest independent and public middle schools in NYC and beyond.

Caedmon has contributed greatly to our daughter's intellectual, social, and cultural development. She could not be more delighted, and our entire family feels like it is part of a special community.Ryan
The teachers and administrators are wholeheartedly committed to all aspects of the students' development. Ryan
The teachers have been incredibly supportive, and we are sure our son will thrive under their watch!Kindergarten Parents
We were impressed by the culture of allowing children to develop naturally versus a one-size fits all cookie-cutter approach. Learning is emphasized as a process versus as a means to an end. Elana
Two days after my oldest daughter started the Early Program she came home and said, "Mommy I love my Caedmon School!" I knew right then that I had made the right decision.Tiesha
We chose The Caedmon School because it offers our family all the benefits of a tight-knit, small town community school in the middle of one of the most frenetic cities in the world. Nancy & Omar
We were first interested in Caedmon because of its Montessori curriculum. And, we found that and so much more: a wonderful hands-on learning experience, a strong art and music program, a very diverse student body, and a place where children thrive due to the warm, nurturing, and stimulating environment.Elizabeth
It was clear from the start that diversity wasn't something that was just talked about in a brochure, but diversity was woven into every part of the curriculum. Raising children in New York City for us meant that we needed to find a school that "looked" like New York City.Amy
When our family visited The Caedmon School for the first time, I was surprised by the children's vivid smiles and politeness at the entrance hall. After we visited, we knew we would like to send our daughter to this school.Kenichi
