Faculty & Staff

Our faculty—many of whom have honed their skills for over a decade at SCDS—have an aptitude for teaching and an extraordinary understanding of gifted children. They set the stage, posing questions and prompting explorations, then step back to allow students to inquire and discover on their own.

Our administrative team members also provide a network of support, from managing daily operations to advancing the school's mission. Our community models what it teaches: collaboration with others, creative problem solving, and asking, "What can I do next?"
