Welcome to the Oak Park Campus

The first campus to open, the Oak Park campus is nestled on a beautiful green hill in a quiet residential neighborhood in Oak Park, California. An “outdoor campus” with no interior hallways, our students enjoy learning and playing against the stunning backdrop of the Oak Park hills with an abundance of hiking trails for natural exploration.

In our classrooms, our teachers provide a rigorous and stimulating academic environment with a high-caliber curriculum, combined with project- and inquiry-based approach to learning, in order for students to develop critical and creative thinking skills and retain a deep love of learning. Having recognized that gifted children learn differently, the teachers are committed to providing an academically appropriate learning environment that is stimulating, secure and joyful, with an age-appropriate social and emotional setting in which gifted children can blossom and maximize their potential.

Come visit our beautiful campus, and we will give you a glimpse of our talented team at work. We look forward to meeting you and your child!
