The Hemingway Day School is offering a stimulating, challenging and student-driven learning experience that will equip our students for opportunities and challenges they shall face in the 21st century work force. We work to build a classroom community that encourages collaboration while providing a warm, loving and nurturing environment for children. The director and teacher of the school, Tracey Bryant Stuckey, is certified by the National Board for Professional Teaching (the highest certification available to teachers). Our 21st century learning environment is appropriate for children beginning in kindergarten. School hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m Monday through Thursday.
The principle difference between The Hemingway Day School and other schools is the technique of teaching. We utilize a child’s natural tendency to learn by active participation with media literacy, communication, interpersonal and collaborative skills. Children are given time to practice social responsibility, self-direction, problem solving, and critical thinking. Our students' intellectual curiosities are nurtured through a creative curriculum design and a 21st century learning environment that continuously promotes global awareness. You can read more about the differences between our school and traditional schools here. Our school also offers multiple levels of progress, allowing students to work on different stages of the same curriculum at different times, assuring that children can progress at a pace suited to them.
Our mission is to provide a learning environment that empowers and challenges children to succeed as effective students, citizens and leaders in 21st century communities and workplaces. Promoting life and career skills to develop responsibility, independence, collaboration, self-confidence and life-long learners.
Students should not come to school to watch their teachers work… rather, they should come to school to work hard and learn for themselves.
