Our Program

First grade students at pond on campus

Community School's research-based curriculum engages young students in developmentally appropriate and active learning. We believe that a child's education should be both broad and deep, with a comprehensive exploration of literature and language arts, math, science, technology, social studies, foreign language, visual and performing arts, physical education, and learning about diversity in our world. 

When the school day ends, the learning continues in our After School Programs and Athletics. The majority of our student body participates in Extended Day, Homework Club, or Mini Classes, and/or sports teams coached by Community teachers and parents. Community even buzzes with activity in the summer months. Our Summer Camps provide a variety of experiences for children age 3 through 8th grade. All camps take place on our 18-acre, private elementary school campus in Ladue, MO
