The Independence School, an independent co-educational day school welcoming students age 3 through eighth grade, provides an exceptionally strong academic foundation and so much more. The school’s proven sequential and spiraling curriculum enables each student to reach his or her highest potential in an environment that also emphasizes respect, responsibility and integrity.
The best start to an Independence education is in the school’s Early Childhood program, which begins at age 3. Independence preschool educators are dedicated and professional faculty members with education degrees and years of experience. Preschool students are engaged through a Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum, filled with play and child-centered opportunities for learning. Full- and half-day programs are offered, including the unique “Kindness Kids” group for full-day preschool students.
As children grow, teaching and learning at Independence are experienced through a variety of methods, including teacher-led instruction, project-based learning, blended learning and collaboration. Students are gaining knowledge, engaging in critical thinking and solidifying their interpersonal skills. An emphasis is placed on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) while retaining Independence’s exceptional Language Arts program.
There are many individually outstanding aspects of Independence that may be found at other area institutions, but Independence provides the complete package:
The Independence community is welcoming, as well as economically and ethnically diverse. Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2017–18, The Independence School remains committed to providing an exceptional education. A Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) exists to help make Independence an affordable option for qualifying students. In addition, some scholarship opportunities exist.
