Parent of 9th grade student

My daughter could not be happier at Drew! She absolutely loves her teachers, feels engaged (even in this online format), is already making friends whom she studies with on the phone, and is excited and happy about school every day. I am thrilled for her that she is clearly exactly where she should be!

What High School Should Be

Founded in 1908, Drew School is driven by its belief in student-centered teaching with a challenging curriculum focused on hands-on, experiential opportunities that deepen connections and allow students to apply their learning to the real world. At any given moment, a Drew student should be fully engaged in their own educational journey and able to answer the question, “Why am I learning this?”

The Advancement Office is dedicated to supporting this vision by nurturing lifelong relationships with our extended community including current and alumni families and students, grandparents, and friends, and invite you to invest in Drew’s success by making a gift today. Your donation supports our students, our faculty and our amazing programs. We are grateful for the many ways in which our community has contributed over our 100+ year history to making Drew what it is today.

There are lots of ways to make a difference at Drew and help us continue to thrive. See below for our funding priorities!

  • Make an Impact: Annual Fund 20/21

    Drew School believes strongly in the power of young people and works continuously to create a positive and productive environment for our students as they develop their individual voice. As at most independent schools, tuition only covers part of the cost of our exceptional programming, so we turn to our community for its help in making up the difference between that income and the true cost of educating each student.

Drew knows and believes in teenagers. We engage each student in a process of intellectual discovery to develop an individual voice, the confidence to express it, and the empathy to understand its impact.
