Sydenstricker was opened to create a place of adventure and discovery for children.
Thus preparing them for the learning years ahead and to help make a smooth transition into public and private school systems.
Ever since 1966 this spot on Sydenstricker Road has been a unique and happy place for children to learn and grow at their own pace.
The staff, under the direction of school founder Mrs. Lore Araujo, has provided a clean, loving and nurturing environment for all children and we constantly promote a strong parent-teacher partnership.
Our school does no formal advertising, we rely on our excellent reputation in the community and positive word of mouth.
Sydenstricker School uses the A Beka curriculum. We are dedicated to providing superior educational beginnings for all of our students.
