Einstein School

  • We believe that the basis for a sound education does not rest solely on the rote memorization of facts, equations, and rules, but on the students` ability to creatively imagine the implications of this material on the world around them. As educators, we strive not only to carefully instruct our students in a rigorous college preparatory curriculum but also to help them develop the ability to think creatively, to nurture their curiosity, and to encourage them to ask, "What if-?".

School Notes

  • We seek to educate the whole child, a child equipped with knowledge to succeed in college and apply what has been learned in real-world situations. Einstein students work in an environment where creative thinking is not just encouraged but applauded and cherished, an environment where mistakes are viewed not as failure but as the exploration of a path that led in the wrong direction. The self-confidence our students gain through hard work and acceptance of new ideas allows them to embrace personal integrity and to develop a deep sense of responsibility to make wise and ethical choices. A rigorous education, abiding curiosity, respect, compassion, and service to others are the principled foundation on which Einstein students build their futures and the reasons that an Einstein education is unique.
  • We, at the Einstein School, exist to unlock passion and potential, both in our employees and our students.  We are dedicated to the development of lifelong learners.  The Einstein School is where, "curiosity survives a formal education."
  • The Einstein School provides a structured and positive environment that allows our students to work in an atmosphere conducive to developing self-esteem while growing intellectually, morally, socially, and emotionally. We provide a challenging educational program and broad-based activities designed to help students experience the joy of learning. While the intensive Einstein curriculum is similar to other college preparatory tracks in schools across Texas, the details of the presentation of this curriculum give our students distinct learning advantages.
  • There are other advantages of an Einstein education that are not immediately apparent. A move to Einstein from a student`s current school gives them a renewed opportunity for success. Even intelligent children are not immediately successful. Sometimes they need a second chance.
  • Finally, our students are given the opportunity to excel above their grade level without having to be removed from their peer group.
