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.

Computer science


We have shifted away from “technology” classes for students in first grade through eighth grade and reimagined them, designing a comprehensive computer science curriculum. These core classes ensure our graduates are fluent in multiple programming languages in order to design apps, websites, robotics, and other physical computing applications in the service of solving authentic challenges and making the world a better place.
