General School Mission

"The mission of The Young School is to foster personal excellence by providing a dynamic learning environment where each child discovers and develops his or her unique gifts and abilities.

The perfect balance of hands-on learning and fundamental skills.

Can you picture in your mind the perfect school for your child? Perhaps it's a school that encourages your child to rise to his or her own ability level in each subject. You imagine a unique educational environment that uncovers your child's talents while he or she discovers the true joy of learning.

You envision a school where teachers tap into your child's natural curiosities along the exciting journey of academic and social development. This wonderful school you imagine for your child is already here. The Young School is all of this and so much more.
