A World-Class Faculty
At the heart of every great school lie great teachers. Our best in class faculty, are knowledgeable and passionate about their disciplines, and equally passionate about engaging students in important learning both inside and outside the classroom. Our teachers enjoy bright and enthusiastic students, outstanding facilities, and a shared commitment to best-practice pedagogy and the application of the most current research in effective teaching and learning. Lifelong learners who are committed to constantly improving their craft, our teachers collaborate closely within and across grade levels and disciplines in order to harness the collective talent of their colleagues, while modeling the very behaviors we seek in our students. Small class sizes with a student-teacher ratio of 8:1, allow our faculty to form deep and meaningful relationships with each student, and to tailor instruction accordingly in order to best capture each student’s unique strengths and promise for improvement. More than 70% of our faculty hold advanced degrees and the average number of years of teaching experience among our faculty is 16. Nearly half of the School's current faculty have spent over a decade teaching here, which says a lot about the way teachers feel about the School.
The natural beauty of our 100-acre campus

From a state-of-the-art STEM facility to nine separate classroom buildings to professional quality theatres, art studios, music rooms, outstanding athletic fields and facilities, including an 80,000 square-foot athletic center and a natatorium featuring an Olympic-size pool, to many inviting and intentionally-designed student-centered common areas fostering our close-knit community – the campus and its resources support the School’s goal of delivering an unparalleled learning experience in a supportive campus community.
