There are seven multi-age classrooms and one stand-alone sixth grade.
Every classroom has two full-time teachers.
All students, including prechoolers, study Spanish.
Other special areas include fitness, art, and music.
We have an intentional social curriculum that teaches children to know themselves, to take responsibility for themselves and their learning, and to be kind and compassionate community members.
We have a flexible drop-off in the morning from 8:00-8:30 a.m. and welcome and encourage parents to come into our classrooms.
We have an Extended Day option until 5:30 p.m. daily that is staffed by the same teachers students work with during the regular school day hours.
We have 175 full school days.
Vacation childcare is offered many days that school is not in session.
