Educating future change makers
An independent elementary and middle school in Menlo Park, CA, Synapse offers an advanced academic curriculum fully integrated with social emotional learning. The program is carefully designed as a model school to demonstrate the power of blending Six Seconds’ emotional intelligence programs with leading-edge instruction that is brain-based, project driven, and based on constructivist learning in school-wide themes. Our combined-grade classes are small, with two co-teachers in each classroom. Our progressive assessment culminates in personalized education plans for each student rather than evaluation by a traditional grading system. With the goal of educating future change makers, who are prepared to take on the world's many challenges, Synapse provides an engaging intellectual environment for students.
We are now in the 2014-2015 admissions season, for applicants entering Synapse in the 2015-2016 school year. To begin the process, sign up to attend a Synapse Prospective Parent Information Night.
