School Notes:

  • At Sundance each child is viewed as an individual and their learning experience is taylored to their own personal development.  Students experience a full range of challenging academic curriculum in a hands-on, carefully prepared environment that entices their interests and engages them in the learning process.  Students work independently and in groups.  The classes are comprised of 3-year mixed age groupings so that younger students learn from older students, and older students have the opportunity to be the leaders of the classroom, and share their knowledge with their peers.
