School Notes

  • As a laboratory school, our preschool through fifth grade students may have daily interactions with college students. In addition to the core curriculum, students have weekly classes in Spanish, art, physical education, music, and technology education. An afterschool program, Explorations, is available from dismissal to 5:30 PM, and during school vacations. There is a very supportive and active Parents' Association. Tuition is revised each year, and specific costs are shown on the school's web page. Tuition differs for preschool, kindergarten, and grades one through five.
