Sycamore caters to the needs of highly intelligent children, from preschool through 8th grade.
We shape gifted students into gifted humans – people who are comfortable in their own skin, who think clearly and potently, and who engage the gifts they’ve received with humility and a joyful determination to make the most of their lives. At Sycamore, gifted learners find a home. It is important for our brightest students to have an intellectual peer group, and at Sycamore they find one.
At Sycamore School, students learn at a rate and intensity that fits them. It is accelerated, but it’s the rate and challenge that stirs intelligence to life and delight. Here, gifted students achieve greater learning success. The greatest challenge in educating a highly-intelligent student is engagement – and giving minds that cover ground in a big hurry a ton of ground to explore. At Sycamore School, high intelligence is normalized. Rather than being “different” and feeling like an outsider, gifted is the norm at Sycamore, which allows kids to be themselves.

And to send them into the world as prepared as they can be.
And here’s the promise we make to those who choose a Sycamore education: we will help parents of gifted children fulfill their promises, and help gifted children grow into the promise within them…. Read More
