About

High School & College Placement

When our students start at Bank Street, they might not be thinking about life after Bank Street—but we very much are! Our Director of High School Placement and Head of Upper School partner with faculty and staff to help families explore the best high school options for each student. The arc of our nursery through 8th grade model prepares students to apply to high school and to shine throughout the process. In fact, our graduates say this experience gives them an advantage when it comes time to apply for college. Here is a look at where our recent graduates chose to attend high school and college.

Spotlight on Progressive Education:

From Bank Street to High School
Parents and students are often surprised to discover that where they started is nowhere near where they end up. Although they expend a lot of time and energy, they are also stimulated by the active and interactive nature of the search. It is a wonderfully fluid process, saturated with communication between the school and families, parents and children, students and peers, and graduates and students.
