School Notes

  • We offer small classes which allow our students to progress at their own pace while developing lasting childhood friends. Due to the diverse scope of the Tuller Method of education, all children have the opportunity to become successful scholars.  We believe that all children are able to excel when given a loving environment to explore and learn about the world in which they live.
  • Students are taught the core subjects of math, science, reading, writing and social studies.  They also participate in physical education, computer technology and various electives.  In order to provide students with the environment needed to succeed, classrooms accommodate a maximum of 12 students.  Each student is challenged to excel to the best of his or her ability.  Children of all learning abilities are accepted at Tuller School, including students who are:  gifted, high-functioning autistic, ADHD and ADD.
