On February 3, 2010, the NY Frugal Family Examiner spotlighted The Children's Storefront School, a free, private school for New York City children in grades K through 8.
The NY Gifted Education Examiner spoke to Head of School Kathy Egmont and Vice President of Communications Daniel Brewer about how The Children's Storefront School accommodates children with different learning styles, speeds and aptitudes all in one classroom.
Children's Storefront School: We teach to the top of the class and modify our instruction for individual needs. We have a strong family support and academic support program. We work with families to understand our students and help them learn how to be successful. We offer additional time, tutoring, homework help, summer school and counseling to students who need the support. In addition, our staff forms strong personal relationships with them, encouraging them to persevere, set their sights high and achieve at their highest level. I believe that our inclusion of art, music, drama and sports helps us to build on our students' strengths and help them to achieve in areas that require diligence and patience.
Examiner: What sort of child does best at The Storefront School?
Children's Storefront School: The Storefront is a successful environment for many kinds of children. The elements necessary for success at the Storefront are three: 1) Respect for self and others, 2) Appreciation for the value of education, and 3) Willingness to do the work. Clearly these elements can be found in children who are artistic, musical, sports-minded, academically strong as well as those who struggle with academics. Children from all backgrounds and situations can be successful here.
