Mission

Maple Street School is a joyful academic community that cultivates personal and social responsibility. We nurture intellectual and creative growth through an engaging curriculum.
Our culture of respect inspires confident learners.

Core Values

  • Maple Street School seeks students who can benefit from and contribute to an enriched and challenging learning environment, which promotes a full awareness of the world and respect for cultural differences. 

  • We are committed to excellence in language arts, in mathematics; physical, life and environmental sciences; geography and history; the arts, music, drama, foreign languages, computer literacy, and physical education. 

  • We are committed to developing environmental awareness and an appreciation of the natural world in order that our students become informed, responsible stewards of the land. 

  • We believe the visual and performing arts are vital and that creativity in art, music, movement, and drama enhances the child’s capacity to attain and synthesize all knowledge and concepts. 

  • We believe a solid physical education program promotes skill growth, a sense of teamwork, fair play, and lifelong healthy body awareness.

  • We believe that intimate classroom settings encourage effective group interaction, individual focus, and concentration. We are committed to a low student-teacher ratio so that teachers may encourage each individual student to do his or her best, diagnose individual cognitive abilities and learning patterns, skillfully direct effort, and offer the support, which builds confidence and self esteem. 

  • We ask students to help create a dynamic learning atmosphere by supporting classmates and interact in a thoughtful manner with children of different ages.

  • We believe a strong social skills curriculum emphasizes responsibility to the group, respect for others, and cooperation. 

  • We believe community service through age-appropriate outreach activities is viewed as both a contribution to the school environment and to the broader community.

  • We believe that our student body should not be limited to those children whose families can afford a Maple Street education and seek to attract representation from all socioeconomic levels through a substantial need-based scholarship program.
