School Notes

  • Inly School uses a blend of Montessori curriculum and philosophy combined with educational best practices to teach core subjects, world languages, arts, athletics, and life skills.
  • The Inly curriculum is hands-on, experiential, and exploratory. Students are taught to ask questions, seek knowledge, and pursue answers.
  • Above all, they are given opportunities to have a voice and be leaders so they can self-confidently face new challenges in new settings.
  • Teachers individualize the Inly curriculum to help each student work to his or her personal best. This means students can progress through the curriculum at their own pace-whether working above grade level in a particular subject, or taking the time to reinforce learning and skills in another subject.
  • The curriculum is also highly integrated-teachers present lessons that draw on more than one subject to teach skills and concepts and deepen understanding.
