Discover This School

At Commodore Sloat, children learn by doing. Our experienced staff leads children to do more than find the right answers. We learn to pay attention to how we think as well. As a high-performing school, our dedicated staff knows how to support students in reaching higher levels of academic performance. Beyond academics, we design and deliver instruction that teaches students how to discern the difference between right and wrong, how to form evidence-based conclusions, and how to become citizens in a rapidly-changing and complex world. Our sixteen classrooms extend learning beyond the basics. By integrating arts, music, and gardening experiences into instruction, students retain what they have learned and learn things that matter. Fitness, environmental stewardship, singing, performing, and joyful learners are all part of what you can expect to find here. The mission of Commodore Sloat School is to develop and nurture creative, 21st Century critical thinkers who show tenacity in resolving complex problems, care for themselves and others, navigate change with grace, and recognize the value of service to their communities.
