Welcome to Sycamore School!
I am proud to serve a school with a deeply held and focused mission: Sycamore School exists so that academically gifted children can experience the enriched, accelerated education they need to reach their potential and to lead responsible, constructive, fulfilling lives. Sycamore is similar to most private, independent schools in terms of infrastructure and administration. Our mission, however, sets us apart from most schools. Our mission drives everything we do and all we hope to be.
At Sycamore, we serve kids in the top 2-3% of the population in measures of intellectual potential. In a typical educational setting, these kids are outliers and often do not get their needs met. Here, however, that’s what we do. We offer a program of rigorous academics, visual and performing arts, athletics, and foreign language. Intertwined throughout the program are our four core character values: respect, moral courage, empathy, and relationships. Our kids learn to do good along with doing well.
Our faculty is second to none. Trained in gifted education, teachers here understand exactly what these kids need, and they know how to provide it. When kids of similar intellectual potential are placed with smart, dedicated teachers, the sparks begin to fly!
Please take some time to tour our website, and then come visit us. It’s very hard to understand the happy energy that pervades Sycamore unless you see it firsthand. I am privileged to be a part of this very special school!
Onward and upward!
Head of School
