School Notes

  • Soundview was founded in the belief that a student best develop academic skills, self-worth and leadership ability in small classes, where teachers know the learning style and interests of each individual. Therefore, classes average seven students at Soundview.Soundview's philosophy is that a non-competitive approach is the best way to equip students to succeed in the real world. We articulate this conviction in every aspect of a student's educational experience.At Soundview, we believe in the value of each indivdiual. Students learn that we listen to them and respond reasonably to them. They understand that they can control their education, based upon individual goals they set in consultation with advisors, administrators and family.
