School Notes:

  • The Science and Technology Concepts curriculum is integrated with our rich blend of humanities subjects including Art, Music, French, our unique Everyday Ethics program, progress-based Reading and Language Arts and the highly acclaimed History Alive program - young minds light up as they joyfully make connections across these different subject areas.  The wildly popular Singapore Math curriculum rounds out our STEM offerings.
