School Notes

  • We are a small school, so our students receive a great deal of individual attention whether they are in pre-school or on thier way to high school. Class Teachers coordinate class activities, monitor the students' academic and personal progress, and serve as liasons between school and home. Faculty members work closely with students to help them learn discipline and responsibility as well as teaching them to work independently. The social life of our school is lively and warm, and students thrive in a caring commuity of teachers and peers. Our graduates go on to the finest independent and public high schools and the nation's top colleges.
