Visiting Sycamore School

The best way to experience Sycamore School is by visiting the school. See for yourself the amazing teaching and learning that takes place inside the classrooms. Witness the love our teachers have for our students. Get a great feel for the strong sense of community and the countless opportunities available to Sycamore students and families.
Nearly every Wednesday from 9:00-11:00 a.m., we invite interested parents to learn more about how Sycamore educates gifted students, hear about our academics and activities, teachers, administrators, and parents. For at least the remainder of the 2020 calendar year, Wednesdays with Sycamore will be virtual events. Click here to learn more about Wednesdays with Sycamore and to register!

We are excited to offer our first Virtual Winter Open House from 12:00-2:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 24! This event will allow families to take a very close look at the curriculum, learn about various aspects of the school, and engage with students, parents, and staff via Q&A sessions.

We love introducing families to Sycamore School! If you cannot attend a Wednesdays with Sycamore and/or you do not feel comfortable scheduling an in-person visit to our school, you can schedule a Virtual Admissions Visit! Schedule a time that is convenient for your family to have a conversation with the Enrollment Management Office and one or more of several administrators, such as our division heads, our Director of Extended Programs, etc. Click here to learn more and/or to schedule your family's Virtual Admissions Visit!

The Enrollment Management Office always is glad to meet one-on-one with interested families for a tour. Even though our students will be learning virtually starting November 19 and will not return to in-person learning until January 19, we still are glad to offer families individual tours at the school. Contact Erica Harrison, Assistant Director of Enrollment Management, at (317) 202-2544 or to schedule your tour!
As noted above, we are welcoming individual visitors for in-person tours. We understand that some families would like to explore Sycamore in a virtual setting, so we are excited to offer a virtual interactive tour of our school!

The annual Fall Open House was an in-person event here at Sycamore that took place from 12:00-4:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 25, 2020. Interested families were able to sign up for a designated time slot in very small groups, and guests had a chance to tour the school, meet Division Heads and teachers in each division, interact with current parents, and walk away with a great understanding of Sycamore School! If you did not get a chance to attend our Fall Open House, please contact the Enrollment Management Office at (317) 202-2544 to schedule an individual tour!

In recent years we have hosted an Early Childhood Open House, which has allowed parents to get an up close and personal look at Early Childhood (Preschool, Prekindergarten, and Kindergarten). This event has taken place from 9:00-11:00 a.m. on a Friday in late January. This has been an excellent opportunity for families to understand the uniqueness of our Early Childhood program and how it offers a great foundation for gifted education for years to come! Due to the pandemic, we will not be hosting this event during 2020-2021 since it would involve multiple guests in the school when students are present. But, as shared above, we are planning our virtual Winter Open House late in January!

We historically have hosted a peek into Sycamore’s Early Childhood classes at Sneak Peeks, which are programs for children ages 2-4 and their parents. Recent class offerings have included “Let’s Be Innovators,” “Appreciating Art,” and “Let’s Get Moving.” Due to the pandemic and the desire to keep students and families as safe as possible, we will not be offering Sneak Peeks until we feel we can safely do so.

In the meantime, in addition to the at-school and virtual events, you can learn more by doing any of the following:
