School Notes

  • The Grayson School provides gifted children a challenging, research-based education worthy of their intellect and their intrinsic desire to learn and think deeply. We serve as a valued resource for the gifted education community in Philadelphia and nationwide.
  • Our philosophy is built on principles proven to generate meaningful educational benefits for gifted children.  A long and continually-growing body of research and classroom experience suggests our model of differentiation, ability grouping, enrichment, and flexibility, with increasing levels of advanced, abstract, and complex curriculum that respond to each individual learner`s needs. In the hands of highly-trained teachers leading small classes, these elements create a challenging and fulfilling learning environment for highly gifted students. 
  • We recognize that exceptional ability knows no boundaries, yet that inequitable access to resources may prevent gifted students who are disadvantaged from reaching their potential. Providing adequate and appropriate resources, and identifying and meeting the needs of all our students is central to our mission.
  • Through culturally responsive instruction and ongoing opportunities for interaction with diverse peers, both within the school and the broader community, a Grayson education will promote the citizenship development, social awareness, complexity of thinking, and communication skills essential for our students to thrive in an increasingly multicultural nation and global economy.
