Fearless Curiosity and Deep Caring

At Mead, the Pre-K-5 years are a pivotal period for amplifying creativity, nurturing courage, fueling curiosity, and practicing caring collaboration.  

We believe that when students build trusting, respectful relationships with their teachers and peers, they feel a great sense of community that supports and encourages them to dig deeply into their learning, push outside of their comfort zones, and realize a greater sense of self. 
Experiential learning is at the heart of what we do. The Mead School creates an environment where exploration, trial and error, collaboration, and skilled teaching of a rich curriculum seamlessly marry appropriate rigor and social and emotional growth.  As students move through the elementary years, opportunities to choose independent projects and electives feed burgeoning autonomy, allowing young learners to find their voices, take risks, and cultivate their creativity and love of learning.
