School Notes:

  • Inly School uses a blend of Montessori curriculum and philosophy combined with educational best practices to teach core subjects, world languages, arts, athletics, and life skills.
  • The Inly curriculum is hands-on, experiential, and exploratory. Students are taught to ask questions, seek knowledge, and pursue answers.
  • Above all, they are given opportunities to have a voice and be leaders so they can self-confidently face new challenges in new settings.
  • Teachers individualize the Inly curriculum to help each student work to his or her personal best. This means students can progress through the curriculum at their own pace—whether working above grade level in a particular subject, or taking the time to reinforce learning and skills in another subject.
  • The curriculum is also highly integrated—teachers present lessons that draw on more than one subject to teach skills and concepts and deepen understanding.
