This Month We Are Studying

January/February: Cities

Cities hold for our intrepid learners a conucopia of opportunities. Our younger students are pulling the threads of our Identity theme through in observing the differences between rural and city life, while the older students will work on simulations of what makes robust cities, what drives livable communities, and how cities work. Our 3/4 latin students have already begun on a play - all in latin - on the foundation of Rome, as recorded by Roman historian, Livy. Architecture provides an intersection of math, engineering, art/design. Cities close to home and thousands of miles away will offer spaces to explore social behaviors, document history, appreciate culture and understand social issues. Cities become a living, breathing lab of exploration and identity. Be sure to join our Facebook page and look at the faculty blogs to follow the action.

From Our Head of School


Thank you for your interest in Summers-Knoll School!

We are a warm, connected, intentionally small independent school where each child is known and loved, and the educational development of our student community is supported in multi-faceted ways. Our students are rapid learners and creative thinkers. They are intellectually curious and eager to explore.

What motivates a child to do well? How can we help our children become the best that they can be, intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically, personally? How can they acquire the skills to learn smarter and live better?
