We believe that every student is gifted and talented in their own unique way and that experiential learning brings out the best of that which is innate in each individual.
Sitting idle in a classroom, unengaged and unchallenged, is unheard of on our campus. We touch, taste, feel, sing, sign, experiment, juggle, wade, and star gaze along the path to learning.
We celebrate: the gift of intellectual curiosity, the subtle sensitivities of the enlightened, and the creativity of the bright. Our students are exceptional and thrive through engagement, cooperation and collaboration.
Some things just come easy to some students and then other subjects are a puzzle. In providing the best learning haven to challenge the bored and champion the gifted, we tailor the learning environment accordingly.
Most importantly, we have teachers who love to teach. They are given the freedom to explore what works best for each student. With a student teacher ratio of 3:1, no student slips through the cracks or is left behind.
Everyone is encouraged to flourish and excel to the best of their abilities. We craft a daily schedule enriched with variety and opportunity. Weekends are filled with field trips and excursions. We champion every student receiving an education worthy of their potential.
At The Leelanau School, we embrace, empower and engage students, to provide experiential learning as a better way to learn.
