Jeanites in the City

Learning at SJB is never confined to the four walls of a classroom. Living and learning in one of the world’s most vibrant cities and being located in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper East Side means that faculty and students are minutes away from some of the world's greatest institutions of arts, culture, and science. Jeanites have numerous opportunities to take what they have learned in the classroom and step outside to see for themselves what it takes to be an artist, scientist, software designer, or doctor.

The opportunities for the exploration of ideas and professions are endless. Grade 9 and 10 Jeanites take multiple trips to connect learning in the class to the real world- Jeanites spend time in the Bronx Zoo, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Natural History Museum where interdisciplinary connections are made resulting in a truly STEAM based education. Juniors studying American History get to travel to Philadelphia to tour some of the great sites related to the founding of our nation. Seniors will soon have the opportunity to explore the roots of the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame through our study abroad program with trips to France and Montreal.
