At Feynman School, we focus on real understanding, not rote learning. Kids tinker, get their hands dirty, think and question in a fun, dynamic setting.

We look for children with the high learning potential and appropriate maturity to thrive in a learning environment that is not only accelerated but in depth. As our students grow, our curriculum grows with them, with outstanding offerings in science, math, language arts, foreign language, music, drama, art and physical education. Our students gain higher-order thinking skills, enhanced creativity and an elevated understanding of the real world. Because we understand that young gifted learners are, first of all, children, we also build in plenty of time for unstructured activity and play.
