Welcome to The Independence School! We hope that you will enjoy discovering the wonderful environment that Independence offers, where children are encouraged every day to stretch themselves to be both the best student and the best citizen while Learning to Learn and Learning to Lead.
Since 1978, we have been inspiring our students to be independent and intellectually curious individuals.
Academic excellence, creative experiences and unlimited opportunities for growth and discovery are phrases that come to mind as I think of the strengths of this school. Academics are balanced with both a strong arts program, as well as athletics. Children have a beautiful habit of rising to our highest expectations, and the sequential, spiraling and engaging curriculum delivered in our supportive atmosphere leads to the success of each student.
We have an exceptional spirit.
Beginning with the 3-year-old students in our Early Childhood classrooms, and continuing through Lower School and Middle School, leadership skills are developed while students are encouraged to be part of a community and work as a team.
Our results are outstanding.
Our eighth-grade graduates are highly sought after by area high schools, where they are recognized for being well-prepared. In fact, they consistently report back to us that they find themselves better prepared than their peers.
We look forward to meeting you and showing how Independence inspires learning, encourages big dreams and sets young students on course for great achievement.
