A Focus on Learning

We focus on learning, not just on teaching.

We believe your child deserves a different type of education: one that will better prepare them for the future, whatever it may bring. By focusing on each individual child's learning style and setting individualized goals, our teachers bring out the very best in each student. 

What is the secret to our students' success? A high calibre of teacher training and ongoing professional development opportunities that are unique in the Boston area, along with curricula that allow each student to be part of their own learning process.

Nearly all of our teachers are certified in the United Kingdom, where differentiated learning is an important part of their training. Setting individualized expectations for students based on each child's specific needs is something that comes quite naturally.

A Focus on Training

Ongoing teacher training furthers our staff focus on learning. Our staff have access to Nord Anglia University, Nord Anglia Education's customized professional development program, through which they can develop at the leading edge of educational thinking.

Special training in the Looking for Learning program also makes our teachers forward-thinking by helping them stay relentlessly focused on the core purpose of schools: improving learning. Our teachers understand that the important thing is how each child is learning, not how the lesson is taught. 

Using curricula such as the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC), we teach in ways that are compatible with your child's brain development. Using thematic learning units throughout the Lower and Middle School allows your child to make connections in just the way the young brain is developing.
