Welcome to Mizzentop
Mizzentop Day School offers an interdisciplinary approach to education that instills the values, skills, and knowledge children need to pursue their interests, to take joy in lifetime learning, and to lead successful and meaningful lives. Students think, learn, and apply themselves across all disciplines, freeing the mind to its fullest potential.

Comprehensive Academics

Students are educated in the range of human experience and achievement through our integrated curriculum, which provides broad knowledge of the wider world (science, culture, society) and develops a sense of social responsibility. Students have the flexibility and freedom to expand on individual interests, explore new curiosities, and take academic risks.

World Class Faculty

Our teachers provide a joyful, nurturing environment where every child is known and understood as an individual. Faculty and staff partner with students on their journey toward self-discovery, working with each child to build skills and develop essential character traits through our Living Values program.

Small Class Sizes

Mizzentop is able to educate each student based on their individual needs because we maintain a small student-to-teacher ratio. Small class sizes facilitate close interaction between faculty and students in classrooms that foster intellectual curiosity, critical and analytic thinking, artistic expression, acceptance of others, and the ability to communicate orally and in writing.

Students as Citizens

Our Living Values empower students to be their best selves in and for the world. Prosocial values - such as acceptance, honesty, love, and responsibility - are embedded within every aspect of our community, creating a caring, respectful environment where students grasp the impact of their words and actions on others. Students are engaged in reflection, visualization, and artistic expression to draw out their ideas; cognitive and emotional skills grow as they are engaged in analyzing events and dreaming up new solutions.

Beyond the Classroom

Each day brings a new experience at Mizzentop, from academic skill development, wellness programs, recreation, and varied opportunities for creative expression. From digital coding to cooking, our extracurricular activities are specifically designed to be dynamic, engaging, and hands-on. Faculty members guide students as they expand their horizons, develop new skills, and have fun.
