Our 2019-2020 Soft Start Year
If you have a child eligible for 6th grade in 2019-2020, you may be interested in our Soft Start.
During this year, we will introduce early elements of our Middle School program, as well as leadership and faculty who will be a part of our Middle School team.
We call this "Soft Start" because we will only introduce certain components of our future program. We will not, for example, embark on international travel during the Soft Start year. We offer meaningful tuition discounts during our Soft Start year to encourage families to take advantage of this rich early entry point and become a significant stakeholder in the school's direction.
However, this early start is an extraordinary opportunity for a student who would benefit from highly personalized programming, a nurturing environment, and an engaging, hands-on, inquiry-based experience.
During 2019-2020, we offer a 5th Grade-6th Grade combination class which allows our early 6th graders to enjoy the established success of our International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program, while advancing through the first phrase of our groundbreaking Middle School design.
The 5th Grade-6th Grade combination provides the ultimate nuturing for students who are still transitioning through a delicate phase of social-emotional growth.
If you would like to learn more about the Soft Start experience, please schedule an appointment to meet with our Head of School, Eileen Baker by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
