An Invitation to Wonder

What does it look like when a school founded to reflect the rich diversity of Greater Washington lives its mission? And when that school specializes in the wonder years of childhood, from age 2 through Grade 5? What happens when master teachers curate beautiful learning spaces filled with opportunities to explore? And when students leap into learning with open minds and hearts, free to wonder, to question, to create, and to relate to others with empathy and kindness? The answer is Grace.
