Blue School

Blue School is a not-for-profit, independent pre-primary, primary and middle school in lower Manhattan, designed to reimagine a more complete, balanced and exuberant approach to education by integrating best educational practice with the latest in child development and neuroscientific research. Blue School has been named one of the “six most innovative global schools” by Wired magazine and one of “The 13 Most Innovative Schools in the World” by Business Insider. Academic mastery, creative thinking and self & social intelligence are dynamically balanced to instill a lifelong passion for learning. The inquiry-driven approach is designed to help children become the bold, creative and compassionate innovators that our collective future requires.


Matt Goldman, Chris Wink, and Phil Stanton (the original creators of Blue Man Group) joined Renee Rolleri, Jen Wink Hays, and Jennifer Stanton to establish Blue School in 2006. The Advisory Board is comprised of leaders from the fields of education, psychology, design, and neuroscience including Sam Chaltain, Pamela J. Clarke, Lawrence J. Cohen, Ph.D., John Maeda, Ph.D., Sir Ken Robinson, Ph.D., David Rockwell, Dr. Daniel Siegel and more.

Gina Farrar, Ph.D. is Head of School.

Blue School currently enrolls more than 300 children. The school serves 2 year olds through the eighth grade. For more information, visit
