Welcome to Mulberry School!
I welcome you to discover what makes Mulberry School an extraordinary place for children. A community bound by the values of discovery, engagement, collaboration, integrity and self-knowledge, Mulberry families are passionate about education. Our students are engaged in and excited about their learning. The faculty is committed to providing excellence in education as caring professionals. I believe you will find Mulberry to be an intellectually exciting and socially nurturing environment for your child.
Mulberry’s highly qualified teachers are the foundation for our challenging, balanced program. With small class sizes, and time deliberately set aside for students’ social learning, Mulberry is a school in which every child is truly known and valued. Our day provides a range of learning opportunities in academics, the arts, athletics, public speaking, service and leadership. With differentiated instruction in mathematics and language arts, students are taught at their level, always encouraged to achieve high levels of understanding and performance.
Truly great schools place student achievement equal to that of the quality of the individual’s character. Within an environment of respect, Mulberry students practice caring for themselves, others, our community and the environment. Appreciation of diversity and human differences is pervasive, while students come to understand their place in our interconnected, complex human community.
Mulberry parents are active partners in their child’s education. We do not simply enroll a student; we enroll the family. Partnering with our teachers, families continue to foster learning at home, joining together to raise children ready and eager to lead lives of great discovery. Parents and grandparents are all encouraged to become fully involved in the Mulberry experience, adding to the success of every child.
For nearly 50 years, Mulberry School has been helping to raise confident, engaged and delightful young people. I invite you to visit our school. Come and learn first-hand what makes this such an extraordinary place for children!
