Mulberry School

The Mulberry School is a parent cooperative school for children in Pre-Kindergarten through 3rd grade.
Our aim is to provide an environment that will strongly educate students, aid in their development and maturation and prepare them for a life that is competitive by instilling in them a sense of awareness, individualism, personal responsibility and high self-esteem through accomplishments.
The Mulberry School values individual differences and welcomes parents and students from a variety of backgrounds.
We view diversity of religions, ethnic heritage, racial heritage, and social and economic situations as enrichment for our children.
