Turning Point School

A positive equation for achievement. 27-Sep-2020

School’s Mission

Turning Point School is an independent school that provides harmony between the structure of a rigorous academic program and the freedom that guides each child through the many academic, emotional, creative, physical, social, and ethical turning points the primary, elementary, and middle school years present. We succeed when our students become responsible, well-balanced adults who are confident, honest, knowledgeable, community-focused, globally oriented, joyful, and well prepared to face a challenging and changing world.

Based on scientific research and the field of positive psychology, our positive equation for achievement encompasses fundamental intellectual, social, physical, ethical, and emotional elements that drive each student’s experience and growth, from their very first day of preschool until their eighth grade graduation.

Early Childhood (2¾ – 5-YEAR-OLDS)

The foundation for your child’s unique positive equation starts in Preschool and Pre-K. In our nurturing, stimulating environment, students discover the elements that will define their growth through their years at Turning Point.

Elementary (KINDERGARTEN–GRADE 4)

During the Elementary years, students are empowered to take risks as they explore their capacity for learning in a safe and inclusive environment.

Middle School (GRADES 5 – 8)

Brain research shows that early adolescence is a critical period of cognitive, emotional, and social development for your child. Our Middle School students synthesize the positive elements fostered in Preschool and Elementary as they gain knowledge that transcends facts and figures.
