Institution Description
Léman Manhattan Preparatory School is located one block from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the financial capital of the world and New York City’s fastest growing neighborhood. It is the first independent nonsectarian school below Canal Streets. Léman Manhattan’s two campuses offer our students a one-school philosophy with many shared events.
The Lower School, located at 41 Broad Street, is the former headquarters of Bank of America International. The Lower School accommodates students from its 3s Program through 4th Grade.
In September 2010, Léman Manhattan opened its state-of-the-art Middle School and High School (5th-12th Grades) on the top floors of the Cunard Building located at 1 Morris Street – steps away from the iconic Wall Street Bull – and just 3 blocks away from our Lower School. This brand-new facility with light-filled classrooms offers our students stunning 360 degree views of New York Harbor, the city and the Statue of Liberty. This incredible campus also features a two-floor library, art and music studios, multiple computer labs, a bright café and an athletic facility with a 25 yard pool, full-size gymnasium and fully-equipped exercise room.
