Family Feel

Our multi-age classrooms offer the opportunity to build a stronger, deeper, and more valuable relationship between students and teacher, creating a family-feel environment. It provides opportunities for younger children to learn from older children and older children to reinforce their learning by teaching concepts they have already mastered.

 Image
Hands-on Learning

Our approach promotes unique individualized learning opportunities based on the student’s interests, imagination and creativity. Classrooms are filled with interactive, self-correcting, and hands-on activities that allow children to learn at their own pace through discovery.

Immersive Technology

We use a variety of technologies to bring the world to our classroom in meaningful, immersive and experiential ways. Whether using a laptop or wearing our NEW Virtual Reality headset, our technology fosters inquiry, collaboration, imagination, creativity, and connection in a full-sensory environment.
