The Brearley School

January 24, 2012 by staff 

The Brearley School, The Brearley School is an all-girls private school in New York City. It is located on the Upper East Side of the Manhattan borough of New York City. The school is divided into the Lower School (kindergarten – grade 4), Middle School (grades 5-8) and Upper School (grades 9-12). There are approximately 50 students to each grade.

The school is sometimes considered the sister school of the all boys Collegiate School, the all girls Spence School, and the all girls Chapin School. Brearley is a member of the New York Interschool Association.

Samuel A. Brearley founded The Brearley School in 1884, and he remained the head of school until 1886 when he died of typhoid fever. James G. Croswell was the next head until his death in 1915. Since 1926, Brearley has been headed by women, first by Millicent Carey McIntosh, and 4 more women. In June 2011, headmistress Stephanie J. Hull resigned for undisclosed reasons.

In the early 1900s, it transferred from East 45th Street to West 44th Street and then in 1912 to Park Avenue and East 61st Street, where the primary program was added. The school then moved to a new building in 1929 on East 83rd Street.
