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!
Synapse School Reviews
The graduated Synapse kids have gone onto getting superb grades in high school with a very healthy relationship to grades, homework, and the college admissions process. They have intrinsic motivation, they stand up for themselves and others, and they are continually being asked to be leaders at their school because they have empathy, curiosity, and new ideas, all of which were cultivated and enriched at Synapse School. This is a very special place to be a kid and a learner.
