"We have one of the lowest student-faculty ratios (7.1) of all of the private schools in New York City. We are therefore able to offer not only a superb education but also a great experience for all of our children. We are continuing to update and improve our physical plant in order to support our excellent program, from new science labs and art studios to exapnded cafeteria and recreational spaces." -- Dr. Richard Soghoian, Headmaster
"Brownstones" - 94th Street
5 West 93rd Street
Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School has enjoyed over the last three decades a major expansion of its physical plant. Three entirely new buildings and a fully renovated brownstone have, together with the existing buildings, given the school wonderful academic facilities as well as two new theaters, a variety of art studios and space for a growing music program. The Grammar School is located in a series of five interconnecting brownstones on 94th Street, a lovely tree-shaded street just off Central Park, and the original Columbia Grammar School building (1905) at 5 West 93rd Street. In addition to classrooms, these house a library, two art studios, a gymnasium, swimming pool, two music studios,a science lab, a computer lab, and the Grammar School cafeteria.
The school began its expansion in 1984 with the construction of a new preparatory school at 4 West 93rd, containing a full-sized gymnasium, three science labs, state-of-the art computer lab, library, three music studios and nine classrooms.
In 1996, 36 West 93rd Street was completed, adding 42,500 square feet of space to the physical plant. This building, which goes through from 93rd to 92nd Street, has two computer labs, five art studios, library, science labs and classrooms for grades 5 and 6, a fully equipped theater in the round. and a large cafeteria.
In September of 2001 a major addition was added onto the high school containing yet another full-sized gym, a state-of-the-art theater, and three floors of classrooms and science labs for grades 7 and 8.
