St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's is a school where children learn first-hand from one another to acknowledge and love the full diversity of the human condition. The school is the center of their social world and, for most, their primary experience of community. Families, from academia and the arts, business and the human services, choose St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's because it reflects their expectations of a community.
Surrounding our school and contributing to its diversity are several centers of learning, research, and worship. Near the school are Columbia University, Barnard and Teachers Colleges, St. Luke's Hospital, Union Theological Seminary, the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, the Manhattan School of Music, The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, International House, Riverside Church, and the Interchurch Center. Many of our parents are associated with these institutions, and we use these facilities and resources to enrich our offerings to children.
Lower School teachers have been thinking together about the goals we set for social studies, in particular the conceptual goals that underlie our projects, trips and written tasks. As much as in literacy or math, we design a program to reflect students’ developmental orientation. We meet them where they are, tapping into their interests and curiosity within the framework of their realm of understanding. For example, we know that the younger child learns through concrete, personal experience – a trip or interview is a springboard for extended learning as your child reflects, questions, draws and writes about an exciting experience, turning it into new and deeper understanding. As the student matures and her worldview broadens, she extracts more and more information from books and symbolic communication, linking this to direct, interactive experience. Eventually, around Third Grade, students are ready to leave what we call the ”here and now” and enter the world of “long ago and far away;” to study those things that cannot be visited directly, tasted or touched. Thanks to the experiential foundation of their earlier years, eight and nine year olds are prepared to appreciate the flow and evolution of history and to conceptualize a timeline leading from then to now.

N-8. School motto, Gaudeant Discentes, means “let there be joy in learning,” and this, in essence, is the defining orientation of our school. While we know that learning – if properly done – is not always easy, it should always be joyful. Why? The most powerful learning transforms a person. When a student finally understands a difficult math problem, feels the power of a poem, or first grasps the vastness of our universe, a life is enlarged and the transformative power of learning is realized. This is an inherently joyful process, and it is what The Town School fosters.
