Our school is a small, independent community of professionals that meet the various needs of gifted, neurodivergent and curious learners. We are a community of inclusive, passionate teachers that encourage a passion for learning that is free from bureaucracy, incessant test taking, and forced curriculum that rarely ever meets the needs of divergent learners. Our teachers are lifelong learners themselves; they believe in supporting the whole child and creating a space free from disruptions that don’t support the learning process. Our vision is that children who learn with us will look forward to school and will want to meet the challenges presented with passion and excitement!
Gifted Teaching Philosophy
Gifted teaching is good teaching! It is getting to know the whole child and supporting them on their learning path. Not all children in a class are at the same level, have the same background knowledge, strengths, areas of struggle, desires, etc. We differentiate curriculum and instruction to meet the needs of the child. We can do this successfully because we have highly skilled, experienced, qualified, caring teachers, who are used to thinking out of the box, teaching multiple levels, and meeting a variety of needs. The teachers are supported as the professionals they are, and have a small class size as well as the flexibility and autonomy to support the children in their care.
We encourage children to take ownership of their learning, accelerate or go deep into curriculum that interests them, make connections, build on concepts and research their passions. Teachers guide them through the standards and learning goals, but allow and encourage children to have input not only in how they want to learn, but in many cases, what they learn.
