What do you want your child’s school to teach, assess, and ensure?

Every day at Blue School, we dynamically balance the three essentials of a complete education: academic mastery, creative thinking, and self & social intelligence. How do we do it? Some of our methods have been around for centuries. Others spring from the latest breakthroughs in science and education. All draw upon the creative, animating spark of our Blue Man DNA, the expertise and insight of our masterful teachers, and the intrinsic curiosity and fresh perspective that each child brings.
