Building community around love for learning

Uncommon Schools is planning to offer two pre-kindergarten classes for the 2023-24 school year! Every detail of our program is thoughtfully designed to connect with young children’s innate love of learning and to foster the kind, caring, and respectful relationships that make transformational learning possible.

Our approach supports children in meeting developmental milestones while fostering social-emotional growth and excellence in academics. Our certified teachers will develop a personalized learning plan for each child, with an emphasis on one-on-one and small-group instruction. Best of all, our pre-K students will be welcomed into the Uncommon Schools community for their entire K-12 experience, where we are fiercely committed to supporting students in getting to and through college.
