Seven Peaks is WONDERFUL! As the only preschool-8th grade IB option in Central Oregon, it is the only school positioned to take full advantage of the remarkable, globally-admired opportunities provided by IB for our youngest learners. The advantages for young and elementary-aged children are just as impressive as the opportunities for their older peers and being the only school to provide those opportunities truly sets Seven Peaks apart.

You will not find better academics in Bend. Seven Peaks School is an integrated community that engages students in an individualized whole-child learning experience that both ignites curiosity and global purpose. I have three children at the school, all three can`t wait for winter/spring/or summer break to end so they can return to school. The school`s mission is to inspire a love of learning and its IB methodology does just that. My children are curious, engaged, and thriving academically. I have two "gifted" children and one with learning differences. All three feel seen, valued, and challenged academically. I can`t say enough positive things about the school; every family deserves to feel as enriched as we do by their school experience. My advice to you would be to get on the waitlist now! Give your children the gift of exceptional academics.

We love Seven Peaks School! This is our 5th year at the school and we couldn't be happier that we chose to send our kids to this school. The staff and admin. are great - they all have a connection with every child that helps them meet students' needs where they are at. Having smaller classes has also helped the education/growth continue from year to year because all the teachers know and learn about all their students. We also love the IB curriculum this school uses as its framework, as it is helping to develop our kids into inquirers and thinkers; they are truly becoming lifelong learners!

This is our first year at Seven Peaks and we enrolled our 6th grader into the middle year's program which has been the best decision for nurturing our son's creativity, providing extraordinary performing arts opportunities, challenging him academically, and getting to know his teachers, and being a part of a supportive community.
