Our Take: Léman Manhattan Preparatory School
Léman is the only school in Manhattan with sister campuses in Europe, Asia and Latin America, something that speaks to the focus of the school. This the school provides a strong core curriculum while teaching through a broad lens, one that takes in the diversity of the city and as the world beyond. The student body is divided over two campuses, which offers a more intimate experience within each, though retaining a robust array of learning resources for both. The student population is varied and broad, with students from more than 50 countries. Together with the IB offering, this is a school that encourages an informed and critical approach to our place in the world, and positive forms of interpersonal, intercultural communication. In many ways, it’s an expression of the city that provides its context. The ideal student is one able to thrive in a challenging, stimulating, and wonderfully diverse learning environment.
