The Nightingale-Bamford School is an independent all-female university-preparatory school founded in 1920 by Frances Nicolau Nightingale and Maya Stevens Bamford.[2] Located in Manhattan on the Upper East Side,[3] Nightingale-Bamford is a member of the New York Interschool consortium.


Nightingale's Lower School includes grades K-4. Middle School includes grades 5-8, while Upper School includes grades 9-12. As of 2021, Nightingale enrolls 686 students, the student-faculty ratio is 6:1, and the average class size is 12 students.[4]


Frances Nicolau Nightingale and Maya Stevens Bamford founded the school in 1920. NBS was originally named Miss Nightingale's School, officially becoming "The Nightingale-Bamford School" in 1929. Since 1920, NBS has graduated nearly 3,000 alumnae.[5] As of 2008, the School endowment is at $74.9 million.[6]


Paul Burke has been head of school since July 2012. He succeeded Dorothy Hutcheson, who was head of Nightingale for the prior 20 years.[7]


Nightingale has a traditional, rigorous curriculum.[clarification needed] Like its contemporaries, the school has a preponderance of required courses until upper school, when electives are increasingly offered.

In April 2013, a team of five upper school students won first place at Technovation Challenge, the world's largest tech competition for girls. The $10,000 prize was used to develop and market their winning app.[8] The next year, a Nightingale team won first place in the middle school division of the 2014 Technovation Challenge and also sent their upper school team to the finals hosted by Intel.

Nightingale has a debate program, which won second place at States in 2016.


Nightingale's admissions process has received some media attention in the past few years.[clarification needed][9]

Financial aid

As of the 2020–2021 school year, 20% of the student body received financial assistance with $5.9 million in grants being awarded.[10]


Nightingale is typically ranked among the best all-girls private schools in the United States, and, like many private schools in Manhattan, is ranked as one of the most expensive.[11]


Nightingale-Bamford has a diverse community for an independent school with over 30% of the student body being students of color.[12] The school has a program called Cultural Awareness for Everyone, or informally CAFE. CAFE touches on the basis of not only race, but also class, religion, sexual orientation, gender, and age.[13] To keep diversity at the school a priority, Nightingale recruits actively from an inner-city program called Prep for Prep. Prep for Prep is a leadership development program that offers promising students of color access to a private school education based in New York City.[14]

Partner schools

Nightingale-Bamford has no official partner or brother school. However, the school has activities with St. David's and Allen-Stevenson (both boys schools) and is a member of Interschool, which organizes programs and activities for eight New York City independent schools: Trinity, Dalton, Collegiate, Brearley, Chapin, Spence, Nightingale-Bamford, and Browning.[15]
