East Woods mission is to foster strength of character and academic excellence while developing and encouraging creativity, intellectual curiosity and a lifelong passion for learning. We are a nurturing community that celebrates the differences among us and leads by example through citizenship and service to others.

East Woods School, set on a beautiful 46-acre campus in Oyster Bay, NY, is a close-knit, co-educational, private day school for Pre-Nursery through Eighth Grade.  Small by design, East Woods offers a broad range of opportunities for academic and personal growth in a learning community that is both rigorous and nurturing.  At East Woods, it’s not all about the test.  East Woods students receive individualized attention and differentiated instruction from experienced teachers in a supportive, family-centered environment distinguished by high standards, high expectations and high spirits.  Committed to developing the whole child, East Woods promotes not only sound academic skills but also important life skills.  East Woods does not follow the Common Core curriculum, nor does it “teach to the test.”  East Woods teaches students how to think, and not simply what to think.  East Woods graduates enter secondary school as curious, confident and conscientious students who are equipped to excel in the classroom and eager to contribute as caring citizens of their school and broader communities.  East Woods is fully accredited by the State of New York through the New York State Association of Independent Schools and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools.
