Our goal in the Lower School is to open a new world of learning for our youngest Scots in Preschool and Kindergarten as well as Elementary students, while contributing to each child's social and emotional growth. We strive to provide learning experiences for students that combine a sense of community, trust, and friendships while igniting their interest and curiosity in the world around them.
We offer strong core academic Math and Language Arts courses, using Singapore Math and Teacher’s College Reading and Writing Project methods to promote optimal learning in these core subjects. Middle School students participate in the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), an academic framework that encourages students to embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world and to become analytical and reflective thinkers. Research shows that students participating in MYP outperform non-IB students in critical academic skills.
Our goal in the Upper School is to prepare our students for success in college and in life. We believe that students must learn to be creative thinkers who can solve problems and adapt to new challenges. Our Upper School students benefit from an extensive and academically rigorous array of course offerings. In addition to the Honors Program, Advanced Placement (AP) courses, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB), we provide opportunities for notable co-curricular offerings such as Design Thinking, Digital Media Arts, and Entrepreneurial Studies bridging subject areas like math, science, and art. One new class is called Social Entrepreneurship. In this course, students develop creative solutions to real-world problems through involvement with the Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank competition.
