Our mission at The Child’s Primary School (TCPS) is to create an engaged educational community that inspires generations of students with the passion to learn. TCPS is committed to fostering a balance of academic excellence and interpersonal skills, while empowering students to become learners, leaders, thinkers, and creative problem solvers.
The Child is Primary
Founded on the belief that The Child Is Primary, TCPS maintains a commitment to preparing students for the future so that they may be successful in high school, college, and in life. The “future” that faces our students is one that will require them to do more than prepare for the next test. They will be called on to address challenging and complex issues. For over 30 years TCPS has been committed to a philosophy that emphasizes teaching the process of learning, of problem solving, and of critical thinking. Along with a challenging academic program, TCPS mindfully demonstrates to students how to develop the individual and interpersonal skills that will allow them to develop into leaders in the emerging global community.
At TCPS, your child will experience:
- Classes with no more than 12 students in grades K-2 and 16 in grades 3-8, and opportunities for deeper learning.
- Strong personal growth and life skills such as interpersonal communication, problem solving, time management, critical thinking and advanced research.
- Giving back to the community through school-wide community service projects.
- An academic and social foundation needed to graduate as thoughtful, engaged students who attend academically challenging high schools and colleges.
