Our Philosophy

Altadore School is focused on bringing the entire school community together to help each and every one of our students succeed – in academics, citizenship, character and personal development. We believe in ongoing formative assessment to determine the individual strengths and learning needs of our students. We then combine this information with strong instructional practices in order to design learning tasks that are active and intellectually engaging for our students.  Learning is personalized so that all students can participate, progress and achieve. Applying learning and building connections between the classroom, local and global communities is emphasized. A well-rounded program including daily physical education and a focus on the fine arts is supplemented by off-site excursions, artist in residency programs, and a variety of extracurricular activities.
