Welcome to Young School

Young School is committed to building a collaborative learning community of students, parents, and school staff.

Our school community respects the differences among learners and responds to their individual needs.  We provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes intellectual, social, emotional, and physical achievement.

We encourage the development of our core values, including honesty, respect, responsibility, compassion, citizenship, and fairness; and we celebrate our success in this endeavor.

Important Messages

Dear Parents of Young School Students,


Our Young School Team has been working diligently over the past couple of days to prepare “distant learning packets”, which have been designed to provide your child with a variety of curriculum based learning experiences.  Though new material won’t be introduced, students will engage in educational lessons that will reinforce previously introduced concepts and skills in reading, writing, mathematics, science, social studies, art, music, and physical education.  


Providing your child with a balance of support and independence as he/she pursues the challenges associated with the work assignments will be most helpful.  Ensuring that the learning experience is enjoyable for your child will be motivating. We have developed a suggested schedule that you can introduce to your child, and support its implementation.  We are asking that you sign your child’s daily plan sheet, and return it with your child when they return to Young School.

Most important, please know that we will truly miss our daily contact with your child during the period of time that we are engaged in the distant learning model.  



Respectfully,



Dr. Peter E. Harrison, Principal
