At The Langley School, we know children's social and emotional acuity is critical to their academic success - that's why we intentionally nurture both in equal measure.

School Notes

The Langley School

Founded upon a deep appreciation for childhood, and an abiding belief in the necessity and power of parent/teacher partnership, The Langley School offers an exceptional community and an individually attuned academic curriculum-proving both to be mutually reinforcing and equally essential. Since 1942, our thoughtfully designed preschool-through-grade-8 program has shaped uncommonly optimistic, grounded, poised, and kind learners and thinkers-citizens of the world, wholly prepared to thrive in the nation`s top high schools, and to lead lives of integrity and self-defined purpose.
  • Our inquiry-based program reflects the latest research on how to engage students most effectively-inspiring them to ask meaningful, necessary questions and harness their learning to explore creative answers.
  • Rigorous, engaging academic programs including Spanish starting in preschool, Chinese and French starting in grade 6, and hands-on science labs starting in grade 1
  • Leadership experiences at every grade level, with eighth graders (not high schoolers) serving as top role models
  • Strong visual arts, music, and drama programs for all grades, with band, strings, and formal drama instruction beginning in grade 4
  • Public speaking lessons starting in preschool
  • Meaningful service learning and field trips, with overnight trips for grades 5-8
  • Wide variety of team sports for grades 5-8, plus fun and challenging PE programs for all students
  • State-of-the-art facilities including brand-new Middle School, turf field, green-screen media studio
  • 1:1 Chromebook program for grades 4-8, classroom iPads for grades K-3, innovation lab with 3-D printer, and digital citizenship instruction for all students
  • Outdoor gardens that also serve as classrooms and a Classroom in the Sky with a "green" roof
  • 7:1 student/teacher ratio
