Welcome to Levey!
Thank you so much for your interest in Levey. We welcome you to be a part of an extraordinary community of parents who are committed to providing the best for their families. Choosing Levey is the most important investment you will make for your child.
I looked at the school through two lenses when I was looking at Levey: as an educator and as a parent. Just like you, my family was in search for a "right fit" school. When we visited, we saw joyful children happily engaged; we felt the incredible connection that Levey students have with the adult leaders, their teachers. Here, the engagement that our students have with the adults who care for them every day is second to none. It truly is palpable. It is one of the major difference makers for the school. The small, but ever kind student body and incredible student-teacher ratio enables teachers to really know every student in the school, not just those students in their own classroom. Levey students shared that they feel like a part of a larger family; the youngest students have older buddies, and are cared for by their peers in the upper elementary.
Plus, Levey's commitment to 21st century competencies play a large role. Like you, we want our child to be inquisitive and to know how to learn, not just what to learn. We want him engaged in and out of the classroom, sensitive to others' opinions, but strong in character to stand up for his beliefs. We want him to acquire and nurture those skills which will allow him to be a life-long, independent learner. Most importantly, we want him to have great compassion for others and be a kind, caring upstander for friends and peers. We want him to learn about and respect others' cultures unlike his own, and be a part of a community that looks like the real world. For all those reasons we made the best decision: Levey.
So call or write us. Come visit. I hope to see you on campus soon!
