School Notes:

    • The achievement of top academic performance is certainly a standard for each student, but learning how to achieve shares equal importance. We invite critical thought, welcome creative leaps, and encourage passion in learning and doing.
    • Every grade employs a small-class size model to enable close student and teacher interaction, promote individualized studies, and to encourage independent learning. An educational assistant is assigned to each class.
    • Students organize to help our local, national, and world communities. Boys and girls work with "outreach" organizations to relieve some of the most pressing social needs.
    • Themes are school-wide curriculum enrichment projects that allow the entire student body to study together as a community. Some previous themes include Black History, Poetry, The Election, Classical Literature and Earth Day.
    • Students are encouraged to act in accord with their values and to always consider the best interests of others in their decision making. Caring, kindness, respect, responsibility, honesty and trustworthiness are central character building virtues emphasized throughout.
    • Our Preschool Center is specially designed for infants, toddlers and preschoolers from 6 weeks old to 5 years old.
    • Preschoolers, our 3-5 year old children, live in a magical time and space. The Preschool is a wonderland of opportunity to explore, discover and encounter the world. The program includes literature, reading readiness, math readiness, music movement, science discoveries, social studies explorations, physical education, computers, art, and playtime fun!
    • Toddlers from 2-3 enjoy a fun-filled romp with everything our preschoolers do but tailored to their development.  Language and social and motor skills receive special emphasis, as well as, careful attendance to emerging interests and voracious curiosity needs.  All done under the guidance of warm, sensitive and genuinely caring teachers. 
    • Infants are our babies from 6 weeks old to under 2 years.  And yes, they too have a scheduled day that includes music, movement, language, and activities for cognitive development to grow on.  Personal schedules and routines are created under parental guidance.  Food, sleep, diaper changing and much more are individualized.  Daily reports are sent home.  A baby's needs for gentleness, love, comfort, trust, and quality relationship with caregivers remain paramount  concerns throughout each and every day!
