Learning By Discovery
Whether writing a poem, composing a piece for Orff instruments in music class, choreographing a dance with classmates, or creating abstract collages in the art studio, our young students joyfully express their creativity using a multitude of media
Engaging & Supportive Community
Our students start and end each day with the same core group – a homeroom community where they can share classroom successes and challenges, collaborate on projects, ask questions, and sometimes simply catch their breath and get started on homework
Our Spirit of Inquiry
Walk these halls and you will find something special – students investiga- ting, experimenting, performing, sharing insights and perspectives and asking questions – getting excited about complex differential equations to fine arts
The World is Your Classroom
Our international exchange programs, partnerships with high schools across the United States, international trips, and affiliations with leading universities create special opportunities for you to learn beyond our classrooms
Prepare to Succeed
By the time our students graduate, they have developed into writers, scientists, mathematicians, musicians, historians, artists, and athletes. Along the way they choose from well over a hundred course offerings, a dozen athletic teams, and a myriad of opportunites in clubs and after-school activities
