Realms of Inquiry was founded in 1972 as a special school for gifted, talented and creative students.
Realms offers a full-day academic curriculum for students in 6th through 12th grade. Our purpose is to provide a challenging, individualized education for students who may have nontraditional learning styles, who need to learn at their own rate, and who want to develop their natural individual talents and interests. Our environment celebrates all that students bring with them: big thinking, curiosity, creativity, and adventure.
Recognizing the importance of the whole person, Realms seeks to challenge and excite students in a wide variety of intellectual pursuits.
We nurture uniqueness and individuality while encouraging ethical behavior.
