Our Approach

Whether at our oceanfront Junior School or six-acre Pemberton Woods Campus, your family will be welcomed into an inclusive, close-knit community. Our classes are small by design, so students receive personal attention and form strong relationships. We work closely with parents to provide an experience that suits each child.

We offer a vast and varied selection of academic and co-curricular options, so that each child’s educational journey can be as unique as they are. All students are encouraged to explore the full range of opportunities available to them, including arts, athletics, science, math, leadership, service and more.

As a proud International Baccalaureate (IB) World Continuum School, and a member of the Round Square, we offer a learning experience that balances strong academics with co-curricular enrichment. This whole-child approach creates global thinkers who are committed, creative and compassionate leaders and stewards of the world.
