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 a full member Montessori school and the only one north of Central Park. As such, our method of teaching is responsive to the unique capabilities and talents of each one of our young students.

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