Why The Sycamore School?

why-icon-1

We provide a nurturing middle and high school experience.

The middle & high school years are a pivotal, predictive, and possibly life-altering stage of development.

brain cloud

We develop leaders, thinkers, and feelers, not just survivors.

Traditional practices force students into one way of learning and thinking, producing a winner/loser system.

why-icon-2

We foster a love of learning and encourage curiosity.

Conventional education is focused on standardized tests, rigid standards and forced acceleration that diminishes curiosity and the desire to learn.

why-icon-3

Our approach minimizes stress and focuses on character.

Conventional education can create excessive stress and undermine individual development of character, connection to the community, and compassion.

TSS provides the tools and opportunities to reignite your child’s desire to learn.
