William B. Ward Elementary School is located in New Rochelle, New York. A strong academic program not only stresses mastery of basic skills - reading, writing, and mathematics - but includes a comprehensive social studies program and an in-depth inquiry based science program. 

Ward School is a warm, positive, energetic and enthusiastic place where all children can reach their full potential as students academically, socially, and emotionally.  Diversity is one of our strengths.  Building upon this, Ward School strives to "produce responsible, self-sufficient citizens who possess the self-esteem, initiative, skills, and wisdom to continue individual growth, pursue knowledge, develop aesthetic sensibilities, and value cultural diversity by providing intellectually challenging educational programs".
