Opening 2020: Keith & Alice Mosing Middle School Building

The structure will blend mindful architecture, enlightening technologies, and state-of-the-art spaces to spark curiosity and invigorate the learning process.

This addition also allows us to grow our student body, which gives more kids access to an exceptional educational experience. A larger student body means expanded programs in athletics, arts, and other vital offerings while reducing class size.

The K-8 Advantage

There are actually several great reasons to choose a school that ends in eighth grade—especially if your starting point is one particular question. What is in the best interest of my child?

"If I could design psychologically safe schools, every elementary school in the United States would go from kindergarten through grade eight...."  - Michael Thompson, psychologist & NY Times best-selling author

Our Academics

We believe that young children learn best through planned, purposeful and playful interactions.

Children learn best when they are engaged, challenged, making choices, and owning their learning.

What your child learns in middle school will last a lifetime. That’s why it’s so important to cultivate good habits, learn responsibility, and demonstrate accountability during these years.
