Ages 3 and 4
Our preschool program starts with our three-year-olds, providing a full-day of developmentally appropriate experiences designed to advance the cognitive, language, emotional, and motor skills of each child.
K through Grade 4
In our Lower School program, we maintain a small teacher-student ratio to allow for teachers to respect students' individual differences and set challenging but achievable goals for each student.
Grade 5 to 8
It is with understanding of and respect for young adolescents that we design our Middle School around their characteristics and needs, enabling each student to develop intellectually and personally.
Students of Color
We inspire learners to boldly and creatively shape their future. Our students not only master skills of traditional academic disciplines, but they also develop a sense of self, community, and culture.
