 The Garden School Amateur Radio Club started September 2016 as a way for our school to implement STEM standard.  Currently we have 13 members that range from 4th graders to 12th graders.  We are an ARRL affiliated club and look forward to making many contacts around the world.


Garden School was founded in 1923 to meet the need for a high-quality, independent school in Queens. The core of this neighborhood school’s early vision remains the same as the faculty and administration combine the wisdom of tradition with the science of up-to-date pedagogical research to offer every student the finest education that maximizes academic and personal potential, in a partnership atmosphere where individual, family and community goals are respected and nurtured.

At the center of Garden School is the curriculum. Yet the context in which that curriculum unfolds distinguishes us from other schools

  • the context of small classes in a small school;
  • of freedom from bureaucracy;
  • of carefully focused college counseling;
  • of a professional and caring relationship among teachers, students, parents, and administrators;
  • of a passionate dedication to education rather than to the politics of education;
  • of a firm commitment to understand, interpret, and present each student as an individual;
  • of recognizing when growth is part of a child’s intellectual development;
  • of building a curriculum based on the highest university standards;
  • of knowing when to encourage and support risk-taking in students.


Garden School’s low tuition, compared with that for other independent schools in the metropolitan New York area, makes it a realistic option to a broad spectrum of families. Our student body, reflecting the ever-changing population of Queens, enhances the learning process through an inherent and ongoing cultural exchange.


Located in Jackson Heights, Queens, one of the most diverse areas of New York City, Garden School offers private bus transportation and is easily accessible and admits students from all boroughs and Long Island.
