Synergy School

We are an independent TK-8 school founded 50 years ago as an educational cooperative, where teachers are respected for their expertise and leadership.
We nurture each child`s intellectual, creative, and emotional potential and honor neuro-diversity and learning styles.
Our approach to education is hands-on and experiential and encourages open-ended and critical thinking. Outdoor education is important to us and provides for exploration and experiences that foster stewardship of the natural world and its resources.
