…because nurturing the success of extraordinary children can change the world.


WELCOME TO SILVERLEAF SCHOOL.  WE ARE GLAD YOU’RE HERE.  STAY AWHILE.  TAKE A LOOK AROUND.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that nurtures the success of extraordinary children.  Silverleaf provides customized, project-based, STEM-integrated education to highly gifted and twice exceptional children in grades 1-8.  In addition to the formal school operations, we raise awareness about giftedness, STEM education and the importance of “robot proof skills” such as collaboration and innovation.  We offer weekly STEM Exploration programs and STEM-based summer camps.

Silverleaf is an active learning environment carefully designed to foster the success of outside-the-box children.  We teach STEM, music, foreign language, wellness, and art education to all students, and provide social-emotional instruction and tools to support development of the whole child.  We provide a continuum of individualized options in an active and collaborative learning environment that prioritizes innovation and creativity.

We support social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth and development so students can reach for their personal best.  We nurture each Silverleaf by fostering a foundation of: Respect, Originality, Communication, Kindness, Empathy, Trustworthiness, Boldness, Open-mindedness, Teamwork and Service.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our approach to education is particularly fitting for for talented and gifted learners.  We support their asynchronous development, needs for differentiation, and desires for opportunities to learn without limits.  Being given a place to belong can provide highly gifted children the strong sense of identity and confidence that that allows them to thrive socially.

Every Silverleaf is offered the freedom to demonstrate their skills, knowledge, and passions in a supportive and nurturing environment. We provide a individualized options in an active and collaborative learning environment through innovation and creativity.

We emphasize 21st-century skills through experiential project-based learning that incorporates science, technology, engineering, math, art, music, language arts, and the foundations of teamwork, stewardship, problem-solving, and critical thinking.
