The O’Gorman Garden has been serving children in Harlem since 1998. The school was founded by the late Ned O’Gorman, an acclaimed poet and inspirational Harlem community activist. We are an American Montessori Society Full Member School and the only one north of Central Park.

We provide a safe and nurturing environment to inspire confidence and a love of learning.
