Welcome to our school

Sage Vista School is a progressive independent private school serving elementary age children and growing into middle school by 2015-16. SVS was founded to provide a dynamic, innovative experience for young children in the Silicon Valley. Our educational program is based on extensive research about how children learn best. The inquiry-based approach underlies all that we do, providing a solid foundation upon which a lifetime of learning begins.

We firmly believe children learn best through experience and should be challenged at their ability level. Learning should be meaningful and interactive, and the learning process prioritized. In this regard, we provide a variety of opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom.

The school delivers a well-balanced curriculum, emphasizing a challenging academic program and promoting emotional intelligence, which is critical to the development of 21st century leaders.

Educational Neuroscience

Memorizing facts and information is not the most important skill in today's world. Facts change, and information is readily available—what's needed is an understanding of how to get and make sense of the mass of data.

Unfortunately, our traditional educational system has worked in a way that discourages the natural process of inquiry. Students become less prone to ask questions as they move through the grade levels. In traditional schools, students learn not to ask too many questions, instead to listen and repeat the expected answers. Read moreā€¦
