The Center School is a loving community that celebrates each child’s unique personality, intelligence, and passion.  Our school is a responsive learning environment, offering rigor and play in balanced abundance.  Students emerge from our program with the skills and self-possession to be reflective, empathetic, and engaged citizens of our world.
