  • The philosophical foundation for the Susan Odell Taylor School are the development of a steadfast sense of self is paramount to each child's educational experience; how the children learn is as important as what they learn; knowing the children we teach individually, culturally and developmentally is as important as knowing the content we teach; each child will have the opportunity to reach her/his highest potential within a safe and nurturing environment; the learning environment will be experiential, fostering curiosity and creativity, while instilling a love of learning in the children; emphasis will be placed on academic rigor within the friendly atmosphere of a caring community of learners; and parental and community interaction will be an integral part of the school's success.

I haven't got enough kind and good words for the Susan Odell Taylor School. They''re generous and wonderful, and truly a welcoming community. This is a fantastic place to bring your child to learn, and the people who make it happen really care about the kids who attend. The smaller class sizes, the combined 1-2/3-4/5-6 grades, the summer programs, the afterschool activities and the quality curriculum have made me not only a believer but an advocate. You can't go wrong with this school.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
