Connections & Engaged Learning
We love that our smaller size allows students to receive personal attention from our dedicated teachers. It allows our students to make connections not only with their teachers, but with each other, providing a richer educational experience. Read more.
Academics & Integrated Learning
Educating the whole child is a priority at Saklan. Students are exposed to a thoughtful, integrated program of Art, Music, Spanish, Science and Physical Education. Specialist teachers collaborate with classroom teachers to provide more integration and depth to the subject matter, further engaging the students in all areas of study. Read more.
Leadership Opportunities and Community
Having a Pre-K through 8 campus, most students have many leadership opportunities built in to their school experience. Beginning in 1st grade, students read their published work several times a year to the Kindergarten and Pre-K students. Middle school students serve as research buddies to the elementary students.
Our Family Groups are designed to build leadership skills. During Family Group meetings, each eighth grader teaches a cooperative character lesson to a group of first through seventh graders. Not only is this a unique learning opportunity for the leaders, but it is also a natural way to build a cohesive community.
Public Speaking & Confidence
One of the hallmarks of a Saklan student is their ability to speak with adults, or to a group with confidence. From preschool to 8th grade, students take advantage of opportunites to present to a wide range of audiences on a frequent basis. Whether it is our four-year-olds hosting our all school Friday Flag assembly, our 8th graders giving their graduation speeches or a student presentation to peers and parents- Saklan students will impress you with their ability to speak clearly, confidently and courageously.
