The school is organized around the integration of four domains: cognition, character, health and well-being, and community engagement; and seeks to cultivate every child’s capacity to reflect and learn, recognize and act, care and connect, and engage and serve. This integrated and personalized education places the child at the center of the learning process. Compositive Primary will be housed in a new facility currently under construction.
