West Side private nursery and continuing school Mandell was sold to the Rocket Group, a tutoring and educational company.  Rocket Buys Mandell

Mandell’s Head of School, Gabriella Rowe, is widely known by New York parents, especially since her memorable appearance in the documentary Nursery University  Mandell, a family-run school, was founded in 1939.

I have worked with many Mandell families over the years who were concerned with private school exmissions once the school expanded from a stand-alone nursery to an ongoing NYC private.  My guess is the school’s recent sale will push more parents to consider a change for their children as with education, parents tend to prefer the tried and true.
