Welcome to Queens Paideia School

Queens Paideia School is an independent K-8 school that implements widely accepted tenets of educational theory. Through our 6:1 student-teacher ratio, we are able to provide our students with individualized learning plans that are continuously updated, and to focus attention on the students’ personal development.

Queens Paideia was founded in 2009 by a group of educators and parents who share the concern that traditional large classrooms, with their high student-teacher ratios and limited methodology, cannot accommodate the needs or consider the true potential of most children. QPS offers a viable alternative for parents who seek academic rigor, emphasis on the “whole child,” and greater involvement in their children’s education. QPS is subsidized by the Mechner Foundation as a long-term demonstration of the feasibility of creating an ideal learning environment for children.
