How Do We Elevate

“Elevate is the most outstanding school that my children have ever attended. The teachers and staff are highly skilled at teaching and nurturing children. One of the most spectacular aspects of the Elevate education is the outdoor component. My children are getting hands on, real life experiences that are invaluable and unique. My children cannot wait to go to school everyday and can't wait to tell me what they did that day when I pick them up. They gain so much from being able to learn in nature. They have become interested in protecting the environment, caring for native plants and animals, and taking care of their community through activities like "neighborhood clean ups". All children should have the opportunity to learn outdoors. Elevate creates those experiences for kids in our community.”
