Amazing school that delivers on its promise and offers a unique and excellent education. A wonderful school that nurtures students to be themselves while preparing them to meet the challenges to come. Strong school leadership and a fantastic and interesting mix of students/parent body.
A school where the teachers, parents, and children work as a community towards the collective goal of helping the kids realize their full potential. I feel very lucky to be a part of this place. If you want to understand the philosophy of this school, I recommend reading "I Learn From Children" by Caroline Pratt, the school's founder. Even if you don't send your child to this school, the book is essential reading and puts your young child's development into a powerful perspective.
The teachers here are so friendly, interested in their jobs as educators, and just energetic and engaged. I think the school operates on a really unique and refreshing philosophy, especially in a time when childhood is so over-saturated with technology, tv, and commercialized toys/play.
