At Tate's School our mission is fourfold.
First, we strive to create a strongly affirmative environment where students feel safe and supported as we embolden them to challenge themselves and take educational risks.
Second, we work together to make our curriculum effective and sequential, aiming always to make learning as meaningful for each young person as we possibly can.
Third, we select talented, enthusiastic teachers and provide them with the support and training that they need to develop professionally.
Finally, we embrace our students with a sense of belonging, stimulating lessons, body-brain compatable activities,and continuous opportunities to expand their knowledge about and understanding of their world.
At Tate's School, we promise to provide your child with a safe, nurturing environment that will challenge your child intellectually, inspire your child creatively, educate your child culturally, and enrich your child emotionally.
