The philosophical foundation for the Susan Odell Taylor School are the development of a steadfast sense of self is paramount to each child’s educational experience; how the children learn is as important as what they learn; knowing the children we teach individually, culturally and developmentally is as important as knowing the content we teach; each child will have the opportunity to reach her/his highest potential within a safe and nurturing environment; the learning environment will be experiential, fostering curiosity and creativity, while instilling a love of learning in the children; emphasis will be placed on academic rigor within the friendly atmosphere of a caring community of learners; and parental and community interaction will be an integral part of the school’s success.

I haven''t got enough kind and good words for the Susan Odell Taylor School. They''re generous and wonderful, and truly a welcoming community. This is a fantastic place to bring your child to learn, and the people who make it happen really care about the kids who attend. The smaller class sizes, the combined 1-2/3-4/5-6 grades, the summer programs, the afterschool activities and the quality curriculum have made me not only a believer but an advocate. You can''t go wrong with this school.
