By encouraging critical thinking, collaboration, self-knowledge and self-advocacy skills, we guide students toward accountability and respect for themselves and their community. Our students become deep thinkers who apply what they’ve learned to their academic and emotional lives.
Finding the right learning environment for your child is a voyage of discovery, and we are here to help you every step of the way.
Our website is a great way to learn about our programs, but to experience the Mead difference first-hand, we encourage you to visit us in person. You’ll immediately see and feel what sets Mead apart from other schools.
The open, bright and colorful spaces are filled with engaged children and staff.
As you observe the small, focused groups of interactive problem-solvers, you’ll gain a sense of how Mead inspires and teaches children to develop the skills needed in today’s world.
Cognitive & developmental research endorses experiential learning.
Founded over forty years ago, The Mead School is committed to setting the standard in progressive education for children, six weeks old to eighth grade.
Our approach is built upon cognitive and developmental research that shows that individualized, experiential learning provides the most rewarding education for children. Our curriculum encourages depth of understanding and higher-order thinking as we engage students' senses and their passion for discovery.
Expressive Arts are integral to the Mead School experience.
Beginning with our youngest children in the Early Learning Center, The Expressive Arts (Art, Drama, Music, Physical Development, Movement and Español) are key to our approach.
As children grow, and are ready to receive, we integrate the expressive arts and academics to create a classroom environment alive with excitement and curiosity; one that encourages profound learning by exposing students to different perspectives and fresh ways of applying their knowledge.
Celebrating academic excellence and personal achievement with mutual respect.
Our students learn to respect the differences that make everyone unique. We know that children thrive when they feel both nurtured and challenged.
We provide an atmosphere of respect rather than competition and comparison. Our supportive environment guides our students through the demands and rewards of intellectual pursuit, as well as social and emotional development, ensuring that they are exceptionally well prepared to create meaningful lives.
