Early Childhood Center: Nursery, Junior Kindergarten, Kindergarten

We designed the Early Childhood Center to fit the developmental and educational needs of our youngest students. The 8,000 square-foot space houses nursery, junior kindergarten, and senior kindergarten classes.

Classrooms are open and spacious, giving children room to try new things and grow their imaginations. Each classroom has direct access to outdoor play areas and a shared community room. Take a virtual tour of our classrooms using the link below.

Main Building: Grades 1-6

With wandering hallways, nooks, and crannies, our main facility feels more like a cozy house than a school building. Sunlight shines into every room, and every wall bears evidence that this is a place for children. Student-made paintings, drawings, quilts, and murals sprinkle the space with bright colors. Students enter the Main Building through the Community Center, where they gather alongside staff each day to share a family-style lunch.

The Main Building houses grades one through six, the Community Center, Discovery Center (library), French room, lower-division Science Lab, and gym. Step into our classrooms and Discovery Center below.

Centennial Arts Center

Children head to the Centennial Arts Center (CAC) to engage in creative learning experiences including art, music, drama, band, and after-school programming. Completed in 2014, the CAC also includes a 500-seat auditorium for student assemblies and performances. Take a virtual tour of our arts spaces below.

Outdoor Spaces

Our beautiful 18-acre campus — with its woods, nature trails, pond, playing fields, butterfly garden, and new Treehouse classroom — provides a safe setting for the exploration of a child's world and a deeper understanding of concepts taught in class. Students also enjoy recess on our three playgrounds and a mix of outdoor physical education activities when weather permits.
