We offer a community of possibilities
Meticulous care is taken to design and maintain our indoor and outdoor environments so that students can realize their fullest potential – socially, emotionally, and academically. Children are supported in their own process of self-construction by adults who care.
Community of confidence and purpose
Ours is a learning community where students thrive independently yet work cooperatively, empowered by a sense of confidence and purpose. Staff and parents support and inspire each other forging lasting relationships that contribute to everyone’s success and happiness.
Ideal learning environments
Our school provides ideal learning environments for each stage of development from infancy through adolescence. Our campus is located on five wooded acres, allowing children daily opportunities to explore the natural world.
Teachers and staff are deeply committed to education that guides children to become joyful, lifelong scholars and engaged, responsible citizens of the world.
Learning beyond the walls of the classroom
We encourage our students to interact with the world around them including their peers and teachers, as well as students in other classes and programs in the school. We connect them with the environment beyond the walls of our buildings and into the community that surrounds us. As the students grow and become aware of the world as an extended classroom, we encourage and facilitate observations and discoveries of surrounding counties, metropolitan cities and other states.
