“Mom — I Love School!”

Our parents hear these happy words often – and so can you. Parents seeking the best school for their child generally give first priority to academic excellence. At the same time, they value a school where the children enjoy learning. Too often, these goals appear to be in conflict. But at Living Wisdom School, academic excellence and joy go hand in hand.

Watch an inspiring six-minute video about our school:

childrenFor more than 50 years, the Living Wisdom Schools have helped children thrive academically and personally. Our success is based on a proven principle: children who are happy and confident approach learning with enthusiasm. Children who feel respected, included, and safe can enjoy the challenges of a rigorous academic curriculum, delivered in an expansive spirit of joyful adventure.

Parents occasionally ask us, “Will my child be able to perform well when s/he goes out into the real world?” Our commitment to teaching life skills such as collaboration and conflict resolution gives our students the skills they need to face life in an authentic way.

Our graduates demonstrate impressive poise, compassion, and inner strength. They know how to laugh, they trust themselves, they practice kindness, and are lifelong learners.

Watch Mariah, Shubha, and Kieran deliver their graduation speeches.
