Young, gifted children have academic and emotional needs that are different from other children.  Sycamore School is dedicated to meeting those needs for gifted children as young as three years old.  

These FREE fun-filled classes are a good way to sample the stimulating education that Sycamore provides for gifted children in preschool, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten.

Curiosity, Confidence, Challenge

EVENT: MARCH 4, 2017
It's the 20th year for the annual conference for girls on careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math!conference, and we celebrate with 29 workshops for middle school girls from across the state.

The event is designed to heighten girls’ interest in scientific careers and help them select high school courses that will lead to success in college.

The conference features a series of small group workshops led by women whose professions include architecture, neuroscience, mechanical engineering, coding, veterinary medicine, and many more!

Is your young child curious and talkative? Does he or she have a good sense of humor, learn quickly, and remember everything that you ever promised? You may have a gifted child.
