Junior School 101

With information on everything from morning arrival and pick up to uniforms and food policy, this handbook provides you with all the protocols and procedures we follow to make our days at the Junior School flow as seamlessly as possible for kids and parents. Want to learn more about our IB Primary Year’s Programme? It's in here. Looking for the contact information of the Junior School Librarian? It's in this Handbook as well.


At the YPA gathering last week, Max and Jacob's mom Sarah Kaufman spoke of her joy at connecting with the students in the library. Librarian Sara Spencer adds this graphic to illustrate how reading connects. Shared last evening at the Junior School Curriculum Night, it's a great reminder that it does indeed take a village to raise a child.
