Opening Fall 2018 Our New Lower Elementary Building

At the heart of our lower elementary program (K-2nd), are the essential skills needed for developing readers, writers and mathematicians. Our well-balanced program places an emphasis on educating the whole child during these formative years.

Our vision is to build a strong foundation for each student academically, socially and emotionally. As students transition to the upper elementary, 3rd -5th grades, our program shifts to a more student driven focus where students can express themselves and their ideas as they explore the larger world in depth.

In conjunction with building a strong foundation for the future, our talented faculty and staff are committed to providing our 21st Century learners with opportunities to develop the essential skills of creating, collaborating, critical thinking and problem solving.

Come see for yourself! Call today or visit our website to explore the admission process and register for a campus tour and our fall Open House on Saturday 11/17 from 10:00am-12:00pm.

Quick Facts:

Educating the whole child!

We educate the whole child putting equal emphasis on intellectual development and social and emotional growth.

Small student-to-teacher ratio...

Our small student-to-teacher ratio means that teachers get to know their students and their particular learning styles.

Specialty Teachers

We have specialty teachers in Spanish, science, technology, P.E. and music, which complete our well-rounded faculty and teaching staff.

Robust afterschool program...

School is truly a home away from home, with full-day and extended care options and a choice of elective and after-school groups including computers, science, sports and art.

Every student shines!

Every student can be a star, with performing arts and music in all classrooms. All elementary students participate in our annual holiday and Spring Sing performances.
