SCHOOL DESCRIPTION:The Ethical Culture Fieldston School is a Pre-K to 12th grade progressive school founded in 1878 by Felix Adler, the founder of the Ethical Culture Society. The school’s mission is rooted in the notion that “the ideal of the school is not the adaptation of the individual to the existing social environment; it is to develop individuals who are competent to change their environment to greater conformity with moral ideals” (Felix Adler).  To support the school’s mission, we embrace ethical learning, academic excellence, and progressive education. Located on two campuses, the school serves just over 1700 students.
