Our School community places primary emphasis on knowing and encouraging each student as an individual. Our curriculum encourages curiosity and diversity at all levels, and challenges each student from our Pre-School programs through Grade 12 to question, explore, invent, and create. As a School we model this process in our own curriculum, through signature programs and innovative offerings that set us apart from more typical preparatory studies.

"One thing that I admire about the community is how closely tied we are... I have been able to learn so much about other peoples' cultures and backgrounds and simply have had the chance to know them better. No matter what background or culture you come from, there is a place for you here." - Tyler Brown '22

Our School by Division
