Welcome to The Washington Market School

We are thrilled to introduce you to our warm and vibrant community. We’re delighted you’re here!

The Washington Market School has been a staple in the Tribeca neighborhood, originally known as Washington Market, since 1976. We are proud to have served as a home away from home for young learners and their families for nearly five decades.

Admissions Process

Our admissions process is rooted in connection and curiosity. We do not believe there is value in interviewing and assessing children at this tender age. Instead, we focus on developing relationships with families through ongoing conversations and mission-driven events. Our goal is to give prospective families an authentic understanding of how special it is to be a part of our school community.

School admissions can be daunting in NYC, but somehow Washington Market felt different – thoughtful, kind and caring. The process felt more like a conversation about the best interests of our children and family rather than an evaluation.
