Welcome to the Campus School web site

We hope you enjoy your virtual tour of the school. There are things you will see that will likely look familiar. Many of the most beloved experiences and traditions at the Campus School live on, even though they may have taken a slightly different form over the years. Below are some of the favorite memories our alumni have shared upon reflection of their time at the Campus School.

"Personal attention from great teachers."

"I loved the books that were read aloud."

"Small group discussions got me thinking in new ways."

"Joining the school in 3rd grade and feeling immediately welcome – the teacher standing on the chair and shouting “Eureka!"

"My best memories are from Nature’s Classroom. The whole experience was amazing and allowed each of us to grow up."

"Playing on the blacktop and four-square courts at recess."

"Reading buddies and pen pals."

"Discovering negative numbers."

Just as you have many fond memories of the Campus School, we have fond memories of you. We would love to hear from you and learn more about where your path has taken you since leaving the Campus School. We hope that your virtual tour of the Campus School will inspire you to visit or contact us when you have a chance. We always look forward to hearing from our extended community.

First Graders study insects
News & Notices:
Open House on SATURDAY, JANUARY 24th, 9:30 am - 11:00 am for prospective kindergarten through sixth grade students and their families. For more information - click here

INSECTS AS ENGINEERS:
Our first graders are studying how insect adaptations solve problems within the environment. Insects must build colonies, cut leaves, haul materials, and defend themselves from predators. Our budding scientists study how insect bodies resemble the meshing parts of simple machines in order to fly like mosquitos, zip across water like a water strider, tunnel like ants, and cut, carry and chew vegetation. In addition, they are studying the insect drawings of the German artist Maria Sybell Merian and then studying insects and creating their own sketches. Click here for more.
