Allen-Stevenson is an independent boys school for Kindergarten through 9th grade in New York City, New York. It opened in 1883 and moved to its present location at 132 East 78th Street in 1924.
At Allen-Stevenson School, we help every boy achieve his best potential within an inclusive community of joyful learners and their families. We expect him to be active and engaged in his own learning, so that he becomes intellectually, socially and emotionally strong. We help boys learn that they can make a difference, that is, to make the world a better place.
As teachers and educators, our role is to empower each boy’s natural curiosity to develop his capacities, values and skills, not only to learn about the world around us but also to value the diverse fabric of humanity. Through a collaborative culture of inquiry, we design learning experiences that challenge boys to take thoughtful risks in pursuing excellence in achieving their best potential.
We educate each boy to acquire cultural competence and global understanding, to appreciate community and engaged citizenship, and to develop the drive to share responsibility for promoting a sustainable and equitable world.
Years Established: 1883

We inspire in each boy an appreciation of responsible citizenship and a lifelong love of learning.
