Peregrine School is a nonprofit private school for the 21st century that strives to integrate the rigorous academics of a classical liberal arts education with child-centered, project-based learning.
Our programs aim to strike a balance between creativity and critical thinking skills.We teach children to love learning, to question and to think critically so they will thrive as adults and be better citizens.
We apply current research about teaching, learning and brain development to what goes on in every classroom.Arts and sciences, as well as Spanish, are taught daily through projects.
Weekly enrichment classes include yoga, dance, music, and drama taught by specialists.
Music, art, culture, play and other means of creative expression enhance a child's life and can enrich other subjects.Health and nutrition are equally important aspects of the school, which includes daily physical education activities as well as gardens and a nutritious lunch and snack program.
Peregrine School is committed to small size classes and very low student-teacher ratios.Our families are actively involved in our students' education, frequently sharing their knowledge and actively engaging in school projects.Our children receive lots of individual attention and have the opportunity to explore their interests deeply.
They enjoy school!Peregrine School was founded in 2007 by Co-Directors Lorie Hammond, PhD, and Elena Whitcombe, MD.
Lorie and Elena are a mother-daughter team.
