Director Emerita

Maari de Souza

Teaching a handful of children from her apartment over thirty-eight years ago, Maari De Souza had no idea she was setting the foundation for one of New York's most prestigious schools for children with learning challenges, The Child School/Legacy High School.

Because she was motivated by a student-centered vision, because she demonstrated ingenuity and grace, because her boundless energy and desire for children to achieve was magnetic, parents entrusted Maari with the well-being of their children. In turn, Maari nurtured group after group of students capable of adapting to – and succeeding in – a changing, dynamic world.
