"Are you looking for a different educational experience for your child?"
This question, posed in a local newspaper ad, begins the Gardner School's story. Founded in 1995, the Gardner School was created based on progressive educational practices and individualized instruction with integrated curriculum experiences for students. This type of hands-on learning wasn't happening other places, and the overwhelming response showed the founding team how important this opportunity was for local families.
The story of our beautiful campus and one of a kind instructional learning environment began 25 years ago with the work of founders, teachers, parents, and community supporters. Last month, we sat down with three key founders and parents and listened as they told us the story of the school's founding.
