School Notes:

  • Our mission is to enrich the lives of students by igniting and nurturing individuals' academic, social, and emotional potentials in a dynamic community which honors divergent learning styles.
  • Each year, the curriculum is presented through the prism of a school-wide and year-long theme. Our themes include: The Art and Science of Communication, which blending physical science and early western civilization, From Evolution to Revolution, blending biology and american history, and currrently Faces of the Earth, including world cultures and earth science.
  • Language-based instruction is used in all classes and students spend as much time as they require in our Language Lab. Individualized programs facilitate development of decoding, encoding, fluency, comprehension, visualization, and phoneme segmentation skills.
  • Our three Speech and Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapist and Counselor provide individual and group therapies, as appropriate.
  • Friday schedules alternate between field studies which enrich the classroom curriculum and Adventurelore, an outdoor adventure-based counseling program that develops self-confidence and group cooperation skills.
