The Young School and Elementary is a private, independent school offering quality education for children newborn to 10 years of age.
Our program serves a culturally diverse middle to high-income community.
Throughout the school, age groups are developmentally integrated in a challenging and cooperative atmosphere.
The school develops each child's spirit of independent inquiry as well as each child's realization of his/her self worth.
It is the school's purpose to design programs that best suit the child rather than the child fitting the program.
A caring, nurturing and devoted staff recognizes and addresses each child's special pattern of growth: physical, emotional, social and intellectual.
