Unique to Independence is our thoughtfully developed spiraling and sequential curriculum.  This proven approach builds from lesson to lesson, year to year, reflecting careful intention and coordination. In many cases, students have the opportunity to revisit ideas and skills introduced in past years, each time going deeper. Here at Independence, it is cool to be smart and cool to work hard. 

When you believe that young people-even the very youngest-are capable of impressive achievements, that belief shapes everything you do.
