What's Included

In this after school club, we will explore questions like these and many more! We will invite guest speakers, listen to music, watch films, read texts, eat food, and go on field trips to help us understand more about the history and culture of Africans in New York City and globally. We will even create pen pal relationships with children in Ghana at the Right to Dream School. Wouldn't it be great to go to Ghana to visit them during our Spring break? You will get the opportunity to explore questions about Black culture and history and share them with the ECFS community. We look forward to expanding our knowledge of Africans in the diaspora intellectually, socially, culturally, and artistically. Join us for a school year of inspiring and pride-filled learning experiences. - Keedra Gibba

About This Organizer

For over 130 years the Ethical Culture Fieldston School has been committed to excellence in education as it seeks to develop the intellectual, artistic and moral potential of its students. ECFS serves approximately 1,700 students and 325 faculty and staff in our four divisions. Ethical Culture, Fieldston Lower, Fieldston Middle, and Fieldston upper. Ethical Culture is located in midtown Manhattan on Central Park West, in a six-story, turn-of-the-century school building; the other divisions share an 18-acre campus in the Riverdale Section of the Bronx.

Through an academic program that is demanding, rigorous, and through, we encrouage our students to challenge themselves in innovative ways, so they can reach their highest potential in mind, body, and spirit. We approach education in an interdisciplinary, experiential, and colaborative way, helping our students develop a lifelong passion for learning and understanding of its relevance beyond the classroom. As ethical learning provides the foundation of all that we do, we emphasize our students' moral development, and guide them towards service and social justice. The admirable successes of our graduates in a wide range of fields - from the arts to the sciences, from business to public service - and their contribution to society, attest to the promise of ECFS realized.
