The IDEALS in our school

Nightingale seeks to further examine the IDEALS, in how we deliver an education and student outcomes, in academic departments and extra-curricular activity. We are eager to research best practices of the IDEALS and design new opportunities. Our mission statement best describes our commitment to these principles:

“The Nightingale-Bamford School inspires girls to go beyond barriers. Our vision is for Nightingale students to be joyful learners who have the intellectual depth and the courage to be critical thinkers, compassionate citizens, and agents of their own lives; in doing so, we advance equity for the betterment of all.”

What being a Round Square school means to us

Through Round Square, Nightingale looks forward to a network of schools that share our educational priorities and high academic standards. We seek opportunities for our students to develop friendships and learn from students whose varied life experiences will offer a new lens through which our students can see themselves and the world.
