Reading and writing are the building blocks of cognition, empathy and expression.

When we write at Blue School, we write with purpose and audience in mind. Here, your child writes because she is compelled to do so, because she has something to say. He reads because he is a voracious investigator of the world. Our classrooms are filled with books that delight, develop and inform, organized into categories by the children each year, with intentional recommendations and assessments made by expert teachers. We track literacy growth through conferences and more formal assessments. We challenge our novelists and poets and journalists to emerge.
