The Susan Odell Taylor School for Children

The Susan Odell Taylor School is a community of learners in Troy’s historic East Side neighborhood.  As one of the Capital Region’s finest accredited independent schools, we provide an exceptional educational experience for children age three through Grade 6.
Our engaging curriculum builds strong learning fundamentals, self-confidence, collaborative skills, and community responsibility within an academically rich environment that challenges each child as an individual while instilling a passion for learning.  The dedicated faculty and staff provide a supportive and affirming atmosphere, where students feel free to take the risks necessary to grow cognitively, socially, and emotionally.
The Taylor School is close to Rensselear Polytechnic Institute, Emma Willard and Russell Sage College.  Families from Troy-as well as the surrounding communities of Albany, North Colonie, Latham, Clifton Park, Averill Park, Brunswick and Loudonville-take advantage of our innovative educational environment.
