A Welcome from our Head of School

Dear Proposed Families & Future Staff, 


Welcome to Ivy Hill Prep. We are more than thrilled to build an educational community for the students and families of Brooklyn, NY. 


At Ivy Hill Prep, we have created an environment where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities. Our children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure they are educated, confident, and happy. Our promise is that the opportunities that are provided to our students will be relevant to their needs both now and in the future. 


Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning and curiosity that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum; where individual talents and strengths can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success as they reach their full potential. 


Relentless in education,
