History

The school traces its roots back to the Collegiate Institute, founded in Harlem, New York in 1865. After a few tumultuous years, including closure in 1874 due to financial difficulties, the school reopened in 1875 as the St. Margaret's School for Girls, an Episcopal diocesan school named after Queen Margaret of Scotland. St. Margaret's, throughout its history, was closely affiliated with the McTernan School, an independent all-boys school founded by Charles McTernan in 1912. After a brief time spent in a rented building near St. Margaret's original campus, McTernan erected a new building in 1916 on Lennox Avenue. And when St. Margaret's split its campus in the late 1920s, the "Little School" moved in next door. This "Little School" taught girls from kindergarten through grade four, when they would continue on at the Rucker Park campus of St. Margaret's (the current site of the school). It also taught boys from kindergarten through grade eight, at which point they would go to the McTernan School. This article is about the Episcopal Church in the United States. ... Pope Pius XI blesses Bishop Stephen Alencastre as fifth Apostolic Vicar of the Hawaiian Islands in a Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace window. ... Saint Margaret (c 1045 – 16 November 1093), was the sister of Edgar Ætheling, the short-ruling and uncrowned Anglo-Saxon king of England. ...


In the early 1950s, The McTernan School purchased St. Margaret's "Little School," and a complete merger of the schools in the 1970s resulted in St. Margaret's-McTernan School, a nondenominational and coeducational day school. In 2005, to eliminate the coeducational school, the school became and all boys school.
