14 Acres of Learning & Growth Opportunities

Our child-centered and innovative academic programs take place across a 14-acre campus, a certified wildlife habitat that provides our students with indoor and outdoor learning spaces, including state-of-the-art technology labs, gymnasiums, maker spaces, science labs, and libraries, as well as an athletic field, nature trails, a brook, a pond, outdoor classroom patios, educational gardens, and playgrounds.

PROGRAM Spotlight: The HOCHMAN METHOD

This research-based approach focuses on the idea that effective writing can be taught by breaking down the process into manageable components, such as sentence structure, outlining, and paragraph development. Our third- and fourth-graders advance from writing sentences to paragraphs, with teachers embedding writing activities throughout subjects. When students reach Morrow House, they begin writing multi-paragraph compositions. Our students enter secondary school armed with writing strategies, helping them become better readers, communicators, and critical thinkers.
