Our curriculum follows the expanding developmental path of children. Our students work toward rigorous group standards and yet, in our small school environment, we have the opportunity to embrace each child’s talents, aspirations and needs.

We follow a constructivist approach to teaching and learning, crafting an environment where children can construct their own knowledge and understanding about a particular concept or skill.
