School Notes

  • Preschool & Kindergarten: Our preschool-serving 3 and 4-year olds-and kindergarten programs are joyous beginnings to a life-long love of learning. Our play-based approach honors the wonder, interests and imaginations of our youngest learners.
  • Elementary: Our elementary program individualizes learning though both independent and collaborative experiences. Learners encounter challenges that transform their curiosity into innovation and their wonder into possibilities. Projects, service and rich discourse are daily fare.
  • Middle: Our authorized International Baccalaureate middle years program matches high standards with differentiated instruction to engage diverse learners. Traditional subjects integrate engineering, design and inquiry-based research. Students graduate as problem solvers with critical thinking capabilities.

Cornerstone exemplifies what a great learning environment is meant to be: engaging, nurturing, challenging, creative, peaceful, and fun. The teachers are smart, calm, patient, and caring, and are able to give the children what they need physically, emotionally, and mentally. We need more schools like Cornerstone, and our children deserve the kind of education Cornerstone is able to offer.

Cornerstone teaches children how to be successful in life. Kids and parents bond with the Community and it is a learning experience for all involved. The teachers are wonderful and the kids are happy to be there. This is not a school for parents who don't have time to get involved in their child's education.
