This Month We Are Studying

Alice in Wonderland is our school-wide Magic reading. How long did Alice's neck get? Look into Elaine's room to see for yourself (80 feet). How tall is 9 feet tall? Look to your right on your way to Val's room to see for yourself. "What is magic?" is not a simple question. What is the difference between magic and science? Is it that, "everything is magic until we learn its explanation," as the 5th and 6th graders propose? Magic is fun, weird, mysterious, fraught with controversy, and always a good conversation starter! It's also a great way to learn about math, science, social studies, Latin, and literature. Our magic theme will culminate in a school-wide production of Alice in Wonderland, with music composed by your children.


From Our Head of School


Thank you for your interest in Summers-Knoll School!

We are a warm, connected, intentionally small 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?
