A wonderful school teaching children how to respect eachother and seek answers in independent and creative ways.... even at 18 months old. Staff is wonderful; caring, insightful and always available.

Offers Montessori education through 8th grade. Outstanding academic and arts programs. The school has just kicked off a capital campaign to enlarge and modernize further. Very tight knit parent community.
