About Speyer School

Elementary, Middle School

At Speyer, our Faculty and Educational Leaders are committed to the needs of gifted learners who are insatiably curious and who thrive in a collaborative community of like-minded peers. Our students are encouraged to delve deeper and pause to reflect about what matters most — compassion, integrity, optimism, and determination. Our fearless faculty nurtures scholarship through an interdisciplinary curriculum that responds to their students’ inquiry. We cultivate students’ social and emotional development  alongside their intellect and physical well-being. We believe our children will attain lifelong achievement and fulfillment because we know how they learn and who they are.

Our students are empowered to express their creativity and make personal connections both in and outside the classroom. Most importantly, we encourage children to be children with a spirit of joy and wonder.
