Numerous Mandell parents have called and informed me that Gabriella Rowe, longtime head of Mandell School, a well-known private school on the Upper West Side, is leaving. Emily Frost of DNAINfo has the story:  Gabriella Rowe Leaves Mandell

Mandell was sold some months ago to the Rocket Group:  Mandell School Sold

I have worked with many Mandell families over the years.  Since some years ago when the NYC private school expanded to become an ongoing school, families have been concerned about whether they will get adequate support with exmissions.  Rocket’s acquisition has caused many parents to feel further uncertainty, as now does Rowe’s exit.
