As a parent, you have already made certain promises to your children.
You have promised to keep them safe. To love them. To discover who they are, and do what you can to help them grow into their identity. You have promised to help them develop a vision for their life. To equip them. And to send them into the world as prepared as they can be.
As you explore our website, I hope you see that Sycamore is a unique and exciting place set on a beautiful campus, and I hope that you will come visit us in person. From preschool through grade eight, you will see inquisitive, joyful, eager, and confident learners in a superb educational environment.
At Sycamore School, we understand that gifted children need a special education, and our mission reflects our focus and drive: “Sycamore School exists so that academically gifted students can experience the enriched, accelerated education they need to reach their potential and to lead responsible, constructive, fulfilling lives.” There are few schools in the country with such a clear focus and unique commitment to providing an appropriate education for gifted learners.
Our dedicated faculty members are specifically trained and experienced in the education of gifted children. They understand not only the intellectual needs, but also the special social and emotional needs of these children. Our faculty and administrative staff write and develop our curriculum in order to incorporate the most current research and best practices in education for gifted learners. The program we’ve built is broad and deep, and it allows students to soar.
At Sycamore, gifted learners find a home. It is important for our brightest students to have an intellectual peer group, and at Sycamore they find one. The atmosphere is electrifying as the sparks fly among the active minds of our students. We work hard, and we play hard, and the positive energy is palpable from the moment you enter the school.
At Sycamore, we nurture minds, hearts, bodies, gifts, and talents. We are, indeed, a place “where gifted kids thrive.”
