Welcome to Queens Paideia School

Queens Paideia School is an independent K-8 school that implements widely accepted tenets of educational theory. Because of our 6:1 student-teacher ratio, we are able to provide personalized educations to our students, with individualized attention to their academic and 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.
