Welcome to Independence! Please enjoy discovering the wonderful environment that Independence offers, where children are encouraged every day to be both the best student and the best citizen while Learning to Learn and Learning to Lead. Since 1978, we have been inspiring our students to be independent and intellectually curious individuals.
Academic excellence, creative experiences and unlimited opportunities for growth and discovery describe the strengths of this school. Academics are balanced with both a strong arts program, as well as athletics. Children have a beautiful habit of rising to our highest expectations, and the sequential, spiraling and engaging curriculum delivered in our supportive atmosphere leads to the success of each student.
Our eighth-grade graduates are highly sought after by area high schools, where they are recognized for being well-prepared. Alumni consistently report back to us that they find themselves better prepared than their peers.
The Independence School Reviews
Children are provided with countless opportunities to participate in all areas of the arts and the school's athletics teams are quite outstanding - especially for a K-Grade 8 school. The school has an extensive campus that is being developed into a genuine outdoor learning experience.
It is probably true that The Independence School is not the perfect choice for every child, but for the vast majority it represents an amazing opportunity and great school experience. Admissions Directors from top High Schools fall over themselves to recruit Independence students. They know them to be independent learners and creative thinkers who stand out above their peers from other - often more prestigious - schools.
