School Notes

  • Strong curriculum based program built on the core principle of academic success for students that are above average and are willing to work and have a love for learning.  The goal is to give students a solid academic foundation that prepares them to enter competitive based programs within  both the private or public arena. 
  • The program serves students from ages 2 years to 8th grade and enjoys seeing many graduates back as parents themselves!  The program is replete of rigor but never loses sight of the fact that kids must be kids and must be lovingly nurtured and allowed to learn from their mistakes. 
  • Opportunities exist for students to have exposure to many activities some are inclusive in the curriculum and some are optional.

The curriculum is very strong and prepares students well for any competitive program either in the private or public school system. Emphasis is placed more on mastery than memorization of skills. I will say that the program is geared more for the above average student that is well motivated. There are several activities offered such as chess, music, dance, karate, violin, swimming, public speaking, STEM, chess club, Spanish, and science club. I love that chess, music, and Spanish are part of the curriculum. The use of the combination classes are excellent and does well to allow students an opportunity to move ahead. The students who move from the preschool program there seemingly come in a lot more advanced but new students from outside seem to catch on quickly.
