Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"School's goals are to prepare students for acceptance and academic success in excellent secondary schools and colleges, and, equally important, to help students develop character, compassion, a love of learning and a strong sense of personal and social responsibility.

The early childhood program is based on a developmental philosophy that takes into account the essential readiness skills students naturally acquire as they mature. The curriculum is constructivist in design; students' discoveries, explorations and learning through doing forms the basis for the acquisition of academic and social skills.
