STAMFORD, Conn. — Stamford’s Long Ridge School kicked off its 75th anniversary with Broadway entertainment, a school news release said.
Two-time Tony Award winning writer/lyricist Joe DiPietro wrote the performance especially for the Long Ridge School, which featured Broadway stars Jennifer Simard and James Monroe Iglehart. The performance was held Saturday.
The school was founded in 1938 by Harriet Rowland, an educator and mother, who wanted a school for children where they would be valued as individuals with different ways of learning, the release said. She started a nursery school with six children in her home, which now offers a Beginners Program for 2-year-olds and kindergarten through fifth grade, the release said.
