Where your child’s potential is only the beginning.

Inspiring confidence, excellence, and kindness since 1946.

Academics

Rooted in a tradition of academic excellence, East Woods is a private school on Long Island that offers a well-rounded education. Through strong academics, and a rigorous course of study, children are taught how to think, not what to think. Our students are immersed in science, technology, math, foreign languages, history, literature, athletics, and the arts.Learn More

Community

East Woods School is a friendly community of students, faculty, and parents that feels more like a family rather than just a school. Founded in 1946 by a small group of parents, East Woods remains a community of families seeking a Long Island private school that is small by design, and that promotes excellence in a nurturing environment.

Student Life
