About this school

Our mission: To cluster cognitively gifted students in small groups with intellectual peers and provide them with an inquiry-based, accelerated, self-paced curriculum. Our students delight in exercising logic, spotting contradictions, and taking leaps of imagination. They are taught to take ownership over their education from formatting questions and conducting research, to analyzing data and creating content, to directing discussions and designing presentations.
