Inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach
, we see our students as individuals who are curious about the world around them and have the aptitude and intellect to learn. They build a strong foundation in essential academic skills while discovering together.
Students enthusiastically dive into projects, working with one another and their teachers to answer questions and solve problems. They test new ideas and develop approaches using diverse materials and tools, both digital and physical. Master teachers enrich the experience by creating an inspiring learning environment. When complete, students present what they’ve learned to their peers, deepening understanding and building self-confidence.
A unique feature of our Junior School program is Signature Learning. Once in every eight-day cycle, there’s an opportunity for students to develop passion projects related to their own interests. They learn how to work through the major stages needed to bring a concept to life, ideation and incubation. Among the projects that have emerged from this time are the Loose Parts initiative and the Arcade Game STEAM project.
Our light-filled building inspires creativity and collaboration and makes learning visible. Student voices and ideas are everywhere, expressed through photographs, stories, sculptures, videos, paintings and more. Our walls celebrate the process of learning, inspire others and guide future exploration.
