While we are away from campus, our school community remains connected. Our incredible teachers continue to deliver our exceptional program in ways that engage students’ curiosity and wonder through a combination of synchronous, real-time connection, asynchronous delivery of content, independent work, and creative, fun, child-centric activities. Our Distance Learning program was intentionally built to fit the developmental needs of students at each grade level and to honor their social-emotional and physical well-being.
