The Harvey School is a private co-educational school for secondary education from grades 6 to 12.

The long history of the school begins in 1916 as a private school for boys, founded by a pediatrician from New York City Herbert Carter and his wife Mabel. They built a school right on their farm to provide a decent education for their disabled son.

The institution received its name in honor of Sir William Harvey - the personal physician of King Charles I, recognized as one of the pioneers of modern medicine. The first students of The Harvey School were 12 boys.

Today, Harvey School offers its students a training program that will motivate them to learn throughout their life, to inspire to develop the confidence and leadership qualities that are so necessary to achieve success in today's rapidly changing world.

For the best productivity of the process, training groups are formed small - up to 10 people. Professional teachers work with children. The ratio of students and teachers is 6: 1.
