Blue School Connected is an educational experience expertly designed to meet the diverse needs of families in our ever-changing world.

Reimagining Education means providing choices for families during these ever-changing times

It can be challenging to find our footing in this ever-changing landscape. That is why Blue School is offering two program options for the 2020-21 school year — Onsite + Online and Fully Online. Both options take into consideration safety and wellbeing concerns, social and emotional needs of our children, the tenets of our balanced, student-centered, inquiry-based approach, and the best practices of our distance learning program. The information provided within our Reopening Plan is based on the latest available official guidance from local, state and national sources. 

To learn more about the values that shaped our planning, please see our Guiding Principles

Each of our Pre-primary, Primary, and Middle School pages offer additional information about their programs and a downloadable PDF specific to each division’s plans for 2020-21 school year.

Blue School Connected
Onsite + Online

Because the future is ever-changing, education must be fluid and responsive to the realities of our world. The Blue School Connected – Onsite + Online program expertly combines in-person and digital engagement to achieve our educational goals.

Onsite at Blue School allows our connected community of learners to come together in our downtown NYC campus for collaborative experiences and learning. Blue School is taking all health and safety regulations and facilities guidelines into account, adjusting class sizes, space planning, schedules and programming to prioritize the safety and wellbeing of our community.

Online learning is integrated throughout the year, seamlessly connecting the onsite and online experience.

Community

We believe children’s learning is enhanced by a vital school-to-parent partnership. Blue School parents are dedicated collaborators in this unique educational experience. We foster this crucial relationship by providing numerous opportunities to encourage parents to exchange ideas with school leaders, support parents through the Families Association, affinity groups, round tables with child development specialists, and ongoing Blue Notes speaker series with thought leaders in education and human development, such as our Advisory Board Members Sir Ken Robinson, Dr. Dan Siegel and authors Mira Jacob, Caroline Welch and more. Over the course of the year, our full parent body comes together for community-wide programming that continues to define the Blue School experience.

Blue School’s podcast, On Balance was developed with families in mind. Each week educators and experts provide insight and practical ideas to support parents as they manage in-home learning, working and living. Never miss an episode, by subscribing via iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher or wherever you get your podcasts.
