Flag as Inappropriate

<p>This is a private school offering both a preschool and K through 6 elementary school. Founded in 1983 as a preschool called the Circle School, the name was changed to Seneca Academy in 1998 when the elementary school was added and it moved to its current location on Germantown Road.  In addition to the preschool, Seneca Academy offers kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade, and a joint third/fourth and fifth/sixth grade class. Classes are small and never run more than 16 to 18 students with one teacher and one teacher's assistant.  Teachers start each day with a morning meeting where students are invited to discuss any problems either academic or social.</p>
<p>Seneca Academy is located on six and a half acres of land that is classified as a National Wildlife Federation Certified Schoolyard Habitat and includes a soccer field, playground and gazebo, which is used as an outdoor classroom.  Starting in the 2010 school year, Seneca Academy will be offering an International Baccalaureate curriculum and subjects will be taught through such unit topics as the environment.  Students are encouraged to interact with lessons and teachers tailor the curriculum based on student interest.</p> <p>The school dress code requires all students wear a collared shirt (or turtleneck in the winter) in one of six colors, and khaki pants or skirt. Toilet training is required for the preschool program.</p>
