Greetings from the Director
For 40 years the mission of Primavera School has been to prepare children for the future as life-long learners by encouraging high academic standards across a progressive curriculum and demonstrating a productive and meaningful interaction among families and between teachers and students within a small classroom setting.
In fact, much research today shows that school connectedness (feeling part of one’s school and feeling close to people at school) positively correlates with high achievement.
The sense of community in a school like Primavera enables our students and their families to share a passion for learning, a positive attitude about education and the future, and brings us all closer to the heart of what really matters: the education of the “whole child,” keeping children healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged!
At Primavera School our staff and parents are committed to building trust and sensitivity among our students, fostering life-long relationships, and providing a developmentally appropriate educational environment.
I invite you to browse through our web site and get acquainted with our unique school community, familiarize yourself with our hands-on curriculum, feel the beauty of our campus, share a glimpse of the everyday happenings that go on at our school, and give me a call to arrange a visit so that you can experience “The Primavera Difference” first-hand.
I look forward to meeting with you and your child and sharing the excitement of our school.
