DARNARD School for Boys



for the City Boy

Explained in Catalogue of


Formerly of Washington Heights, now overlooking Van Cortlandt Park Playground. Four min-
utes' walk from West 242d Street Broadway Subway Station. Also accessible by N. Y. Central or
Trolley from Bronx, Yonkers and Mt. Vernon. The building just completed, perfectly appointed,
open to sun and air on all sides.

With its semi-rural surroundings and its proximity to the playgrounds of that section, its plan is:

To take the boy off the street after school hours, also Saturdays, by
giving him a playground in the open, and by exercising a wise and sym-
pathetic supervision over all his time, both of study and of play;

Then to send him home in time for the evening meal, where home in-
fluence can supplement easily and naturally the work of the school;-

To furnish at midday a wholesome hot dinner, prepared by an effi-
cient cook and supervised by a dietitian;

To provide an afternoon study hour when lessons can be prepared for
the next day.

The arrangement is such that the boys will go to and from school in the opposite direction from
the crowds, the younger boys going in the company of a teacher.
