Our Hearts Strengthen Our Minds.
Sir William Harvey, our school's namesake, discovered the mechanics of blood circulation. So you might not be surprised to learn that a Harvey education provides academic Rigor with Heart. Harvey's academic programs break the mold to match students' interests and passions, allowing them to explore and thrive as individual learners.
As an educator, it is my job to help students find their passion. It is much more than just teaching history. It is teaching them to be lifelong learners.
Robert Griffin, history teacher, advisor, coach
The Harvey School is fully accredited by, and is a member of, the New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS).
Harvey is also a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and the Educational Records Bureau (ERB).
A great education has always led to greater possibilities, but it doesn't have to be a physically, emotionally, and intellectually exhaustive race.
Our Teachers Love What They Do
Tim Cornell, Japanese
I love it when my students realize they can do something difficult like learn Japanese. It is such a cool feeling to be able to share my passion and see students' faces light up when it starts to click.
Nicole Tantillo, Science
It is my belief that gaining a basic understanding of science is not beyond anyone as long as they have the desire to learn. I love questions! It shows that students are thinking, being critical, and forming their own connections.
Michael Camba, Latin
I appreciate the rigor and dedication to education that is balanced with compassion here at Harvey. It is evident in the school culture and the sense of community.
Ananda Pitta, Math
I enjoy teaching in a small classroom setting because students have a better opportunity to effectively communicate and collaborate with me as their teacher and with their peers.
