About this school

Kids, especially those who like to think about their world and understand things, love Chrysalis. They blossom in a school that emphasizes understanding rather than grades and encourages cooperation and kindness. Chrysalis is intentionally small, around 150 K-8 students. Chrysalis is one of the few, teacher-led schools in the nation. The teachers feel that Chrysalis is their school; this creates a professional responsibility and pride that nourishes a magic spark in their teaching.
