From Synapse School

An independent elementary and middle school in Menlo Park, CA, Synapse offers an innovative academic curriculum fully integrated with social-emotional learning (SEL). Synapse's curriculum and school life builds on the foundation of our mission of Educating a Community of Change Makers. The program is carefully designed as a model school to demonstrate the power of blending emotional intelligence training with leading-edge instruction (brain-based, constructivist, project-based learning in school-wide themes). We are curious, innovative, imaginative, creative, and we have fun!

Our youngest change makers have specific developmental needs and love to learn through imaginative play, inquiry, and physical movement, like acting out a story, being creative with art supplies, building with blocks, or having jobs in the classroom. Applications now open!
