Our Pre-K – 5 “Lower School” program is dedicated to nurturing passion and curiosity for learning and laying a strong foundation for future student growth. With a focus on the fundamentals, our program works to ensure that students are presented with a rich and diverse curriculum that supports mastery of early literacy and math skills. By adapting instruction to match to each individual student’s budding learning style, we create an environment that is both enriching and fun.
Our 6 – 8 “Upper School” program offers students exposure to more advanced content in literacy, math, science and the humanities. In 6th grade, students work with a primary teacher, while in 7th and 8th grade, students transition to a more collaborative instruction model where they rotate between specialized instructors. The Upper School program is designed to help students lay a foundation for lifelong learning, creativity, and critical thinking by giving them increasing levels of autonomy.
Our 9-12 “High School” program is a recent addition to our school and aims to expose students to real-world learning opportunities within the context of our larger community. Through discovery seminars, students gain exposure to a wide range of topics and challenges facing our world. They then have the chance to develop personal credit-bearing projects, take part in internships, and take advantage of various in-classroom and online learning offerings developed based on interest.
