Mission Statement:  Nurturing the Gifts of Mind, Body & Spirit

Our Promises

Engaged Learning in an Environment of Love and Trust
We welcome children in a joyful environment of active, experiential learning rooted in their individual development and dedicated to academic excellence. We are a nurturing safe haven where young minds can make sense of the world as they move between the known and unknown, accompanied by trusted adults who cherish and support them.
 

An Education Based on Exploration
We believe the world is to be explored, examined, and enjoyed. Community’s approach reaches beyond rote learning, encouraging students to search for the hidden, uncover what gives meaning, and discover what differentiates and unites. Our expansive campus provides a perfect environment for the early exploration of a child’s world and the development of an appreciation for the concepts underpinning our STEAM curriculum.

A Deeply Personal Approach to Learning, Tailored to the Individual Child
From our school’s very inception we have held closely to the belief that each student is an individual with individual differences and an inherent right to develop those differences. Our master teachers focus on individual children, meeting them exactly where they are to chart a path forward in understanding. We personalize our curriculum for every student, making adjustments throughout the school year as the child advances.
 

Cultivating a Lifelong Love of Learning
At Community School, we hold that education is not an aggregation of knowledge, but a way of observing the world. Our students dig deep into subjects, investigating ideas and the people and cultures that are inspired by them.

Our graduates emerge well equipped to succeed in the very best secondary schools and in life, not because they have amassed data, but because they have fallen in love with the joy of learning.
