I am excited to revisit Calhoun, a Manhattan coed private school that has intrigued many of my New York clients over the years.  I admire Calhoun’s headmaster, Steve Nelson, and its chef, Chef Bobo.

Dear Ms. Glickman,

My admissions colleagues and I would welcome the opportunity to share an updated view of Calhoun’s mission in action along with our expanded facility including nine floors of learning spaces, science laboratories, Athletic Center with full-size gym, Performing Arts Center, art studios, woodshop and eco-friendly Green Roof Learning Center.

Calhoun inspires a passion for learning in each child through a progressive approach to education that values intellectual pursuit, creativity, diversity, and community involvement.  Small classes and an experiential, interdisciplinary curriculum create a vibrant learning environment for our youngest students and an intellectually stimulating, seminar-style experience for our older students. Calhoun graduates develop fine-tuned skills in oral and written expression, critical thinking, research and analysis; they are as comfortable with scientific inquiry as with artistic pursuit; and they are imbued with compassion and a true appreciation for community contribution.

We look forward to hearing from you to arrange a visit to our 433 West End Avenue building, which houses second through 12th grade.

Best regards,


Robin Marion Otton

Director of Admissions/74th
