Mastery of Academic Skills
At The College School, a mastery of academic skills and traveling into the field for learning experiences are synonymous. It is in the field where our academic skills are sometimes best developed. We know that authentically connecting to lessons requires the highest level of academic mastery from our students. The president of the National Association of Independent Schools has said that one of the top trends in education today is the need for more experiential and thematic education. At The College School, expectations are high and students are inspired to discover, create and excel. We inspire and challenge students while supporting them in a nurturing environment. Two full-time teachers are in each classroom. Our low student-to-faculty ratio allows teachers to personally know students and respond to their individual learning styles. By working closely together inside and outside the classroom, teachers and students build strong and meaningful personal relationships that make children feel valued and appreciated for who they are.
