  • This dynamic approach harnesses curiosity and stimulates young minds to question, explore, and discover.
  • Striving to elevate and expand elementary education, the school incorporates art, music, foreign language, technology, outdoor experiences, wellness/health, and athletics into the learning experience.

This school has been an amazing experience for our family! Admin issues seem to be resolved and, all things considered, it's a fast-paced business that runs pretty smoothly and with lots of love. Exactly what I wanted for my children.

From a classroom perspective, the school has caring and excellent faculty. The administrative office is not always the easiest to deal with on issues.
