Tidewater School nurtures and educates the whole child.
It’s experiential and active.
From playing music with strings and woodwinds, form drawing, intricate handwork, eurythmy, movement, and painting to creative mathematics, writing and speaking a foreign language, it is an education that is engaging and heartfelt.
A balance of intellectual, aesthetic and physical activities results in calm, energetic, confident and accomplished students—ready for life.

School Reviews

  • Recommended January 31, 2013 - I have three kiddos attending Tidewater - ages 3, 5 & 7. Our experience has been so fantastic. The incredible toddler / pre-school and Kindergarten classes, small ''grades'' class sizes, excellent teachers, and community of involved, like-minded parents mean our kids are getting lots of nurturing and are developing a real love of learning. Can''t recommend Tidewater enough! - Posted by Parent
