We support and nurture each child’s brilliance and unique gifts by encouraging each to reach his or her potential with joy, confidence, new perspectives and a sense of self.
We model academic excellence through an individualized curriculum focusing on intellectual curiosity and creativity.
We are committed to providing a school fully integrated with nature through a hands-on approach to sustainability including gardening and recycling programs, care of school grounds and animals, and a natural playground where children can climb trees and build forts.
We provide an environment where children learn experientially, exploring, discovering and developing life skills, self-discipline, resilience, and leadership competency.
We foster personal connections and the value of teamwork with an emphasis on a socially diverse community based on integrity and respectful engagement amongst all.
We cultivate flexibility and adaptability through an exploration of foreign languages, science and technology, and global cultures in this rapidly changing environment.
