At Harrow New York, we embrace the Harrow Values of Courage, Honor, Humility and Fellowship.We want our students to leave School inspired and with a clear moral compass to be of good influence in the world around them, inspired to strive every day to be the best possible versions of themselves, and equipped to flourish in the jobs and communities of which they will be part.


  • We remain optimistic and purposeful in a disrupted world.
  • We take responsibility for our decisions, even the hard ones.
  • We always challenge poor behavior in ourselves and others.
  • We are open to new ideas and seek fresh challenges.

  • We act with integrity – doing the right thing, even when it is difficult or when no one is watching.
  • We respect and value our traditions whilst setting them in the context of today.

  • We work hard to serve others within the School and across our wider communities, where possible putting their interests before our own.
  • We give and seek honest and appropriate feedback, reflect on our failures and learn from them.
  • We support each other through challenges and, whatever the outcome, we celebrate those that took part.

  • We respect each other and value our differences, knowing that we are more effective and more resilient working together.
  • We are kind and inclusive; we value the contribution that each of us makes.
  • We role model the behaviors that we would like to see in others; we ask only of others what we would be prepared to do ourselves.
