Private, Boarding Schools For Young Ladies: Brooklyn 1883

 
 
 
 

Misses Crawford's School

116 Second place, will commence on Wednesday, September 17. One of the features of this excellent boarding and day school is the unlimited subdivision of classes according to the capacity and requirements of pupils, which is in effect an arrangement of private classes and individual instructions. A Part of the day's work of the pupils is the preparation of the more difficult of the lessons for the next day, under the supervision and with the assistance of their teachers. This does not imply that the preparation which the pupils can make in the schoolroom for the recitations of the ensuing day will do away with the necessity of studying at home. Applicants are admitted into the primary department, without examination, at any age, and each department is subdivided into three classes, A, B, C, thoroughness in each class being required before a promotion is allowed. Those who complete the whole course satisfactorily receive at its close a testimonial to that effect.
