New RIISE Member School! The Town School


We are delighted to welcome to The Town School to our network of schools who are extending how they connect and build relationships with families of color for sustainable recruitment and well-balanced retention of a private independent education. We look forward to sharing & supporting what Town does best through it’s community of current families of color and the leadership of Tony Featherston, Head of School, Torsie Judkins, Director of Diversity, and Linda Shuffman, Director of Admissions & Enrollment Management!

The Town School is non-sectarian day school situated on the upper east side of Manhattan serving girls and boys in grade levels N through 8. Currently celebrating 100 years of the joy of learning, The Town School prepares students to academically excel in high school and college as morally responsible citizens.

We are proud to align with The Town School:

  • to continue to promote the culture, community, mission, academic and physical space that makes The Town School unique and innovative
  • to continue to attract & increase diverse cultural and socio-economic families of color who understand and are motivated about the opportunities of receiving an N-8 education at Town
  • to continue to support current families of color and faculty with culturally relevant resources and active networks that foster well-balanced retention, agency for diversity recruitment, as well, active giving and legacy to continue Town’s legacy of diversity leadership with innovative partnerships that build upon it’s 100 year foundation

As with our other incredible member schools, we will build a lifestyle of stronger alliances for 21st century success through diversity!
