During the 2020-2021 school year, Head of School Georgia Zaiser introduced the "Inward," "Outward," and "Upward" vision for the school. We encourage you to read more about this on our website. In addition to the vision, in 2020, we successfully concluded a ten-room classroom renovation, including three science labs. We provided "in-person" learning for our students throughout the 2020-2021 school year, as we believe that young students thrive in "in-person" learning environments. Currently, a new "Learning Commons" renovation is underway in the heart of the school, which includes a new "Media Center" and "Maker Space." This new learning space opens at the beginning of the 22-23 school year.
Our curriculum is an intentional, Mission-driven, collaborative, integrated learning community — of students, ...faculty, staff, and parents — connected across grade levels by a coherent, consistent approach to teaching and learning.
Our faculty and staff are the heart and soul of our school. They come from various backgrounds and experiences, and their diverse interests and talents create a vibrant professional climate where their work is more than a mere job. Our faculty and staff share a passion for helping children learn and grow. We seek employees who view learning as a lifelong pursuit, embrace a child-centered approach to teaching, and who celebrate community.
