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.
Student Lunch-time Recital
On Thursday, November 6th, Synapse held the year's first Student Lunch-time Recital. The event had a packed house of curious, supportive students and numbers included piano solos, vocal performances, dance numbers, and a debut performance of the Level II & III rock band Wee Rock. The performance provided an opportunity for students who take instrumental lessons and/or have been practicing on their own, to showcase a favorite piece.
