The teachers know the kids so well. They are able to individualize instruction and include emotional and social growth in our childrens'' development plans. Classes are fun for the kids because the teachers use inventive means to teach what must be learned. Students have art, phys ed, swimming, science, library and language pull-out in the lower school. Middle school (grades 7 and 8) require participation in school sports each season as a phys ed requirement. It's a great way to get the kids to step outside their comfort zone and find a new interest.
