Sustainability is a theme integrated into all the disciplines, at all levels of the Darrow curriculum. The goal of this academic component is to help students better understand the complexity of environmental, social, and economic issues and to provide the primary orienting context for our Hands-to-Work, Community Service, and Spring Term programs.

Many of our school projects take place in the field, like this marine biology lesson in the Galapagos Islands.
Leman Manhattan Preparatory School students are prepared to be standouts at their first choice colleges, including Ivy Leagues, top-tier universities and specialized schools across the U.S.
SEM students can express their creative side in the skylit art room, or the digital art and photography classroom. Musical expression finds space in either ensemble, glee club or SEMACHORDS, our acapella group. We also have a fall and spring play in our black box theater and host the ESU Shakespeare competition.
Hoosac has a beautiful 350 acre campus in upstate New York. Just 3 hours by car or Amtrak from Manhattan or a short ride to Albany, NY for excellent shopping and a variety of cultural events.
Classrooms, offices, auditorium, gymnasium, and cafeteria are all located in the primary school building.
North Country School's 200-acre campus is located in the Adirondack Mountains near Lake Placid, New York, a popular resort town and the site of two Winter Olympic Games. Many of our buildings use solar energy and biomass heating to help reduce the school's carbon footprint and to teach and model responsible and sustainable living practices.
