Hello and welcome to The College School!
Selecting a school for your child is among the most important decisions you will make as a parent, so I appreciate the time and thought you are giving to the process. The College School, in my view, is exceptionally well crafted to address the academic needs of today's students, but more importantly, we excel in addressing the emotional and developmental needs of children. Fundamentally, we believe the most important goal of a quality school is to help develop exceptionally positive self-images and to inspire children to want to learn - not just in school, but throughout their lifetimes. We strive to help young people become confident, healthy, constructive, talented and well-adjusted young adults.
For families new to The College School, it will soon become clear to you that we are not a traditional school. Many parents consider The College School to be the most dynamic and exciting school they have seen, and most say to us, "I wish I could have come to school here," within the first few minutes of their visit. They say this, I think, because they are not accustomed to seeing the high level of energy, passion, joy, curiosity and engagement of the students who attend The College School and the teachers with whom they work. Our students don't spend most of their time behind desks or reading textbooks. Rather, they are actively engaged in the learning process both inside and outside of the classroom. At The College School, learning is meaningful, relevant and real to students.
Ultimately, you want to find "the right fit" between a school, your values, and the needs of your child. The best way to know if our school is right for you and your child is to see it firsthand, so I encourage you to contact us and arrange a personal visit.
I look forward to personally meeting you and engaging in a conversation about your child's education and how The College School may be able to play a vital and positive role in his/her life.
