  1. Personal Attention—We get to know each student and their unique set of needs, both academically and socially.
  2. Low Student to Teacher Ratio—Our overall student to teacher ratio is 5:1, and our average class size is 14.
  3. Advanced Academics—From Pre-K to Fifth Grade, our students are taught one full grade level above their same age peers in the general community.
  4. Passionate Teachers—Over 80% of The Guthrie School’s core academic teachers have completed Masters Degrees in their teaching fields.
  5. Foreign Language in Elementary Classrooms—Studies show that foreign language is most efficiently learned when taught at an early age. We provide full-length academic foreign language classes to all of our students from Pre-K to Fifth Grade.
  6. Early Emphasis on writing, public speaking and participation in productions—The Guthrie School promotes strong leadership qualities and self-confidence by giving each student frequent opportunities to publicly share and develop their writing and and speaking skills in front of small and large groups. We incorporate custom made Harkness tables and utilize the Harkness method of teaching to foster students to incorporate their own voice in their writing and see how best to promote their ideas effectively. Our students participate in a minimum of three special productions each year, including our amazing year-end show.
  7. Specialized Art and Chess classes—These classes are taught by master teachers during the school day to nurture important artistic and critical thinking skills.
  8. Community Involvement—We give back to our community in order to develop a community spirit of generosity and concern for others.

  9. Personal Responsibility and Resilience—these traits are actively taught and highly valued at The Guthrie School. We believe that each student may be guided towards the development of independence, respect for him or herself as well as others, good stewardship of personal and community property, and the very important concept of perseverance through difficulties. We strive to develop active leaders who will not give up, and will rely on their own abilities to problem solve.
  10. Focus on the Family—parent/teacher access and communication are paramount. We want to know each family well, and to form strong community bonds with them. There is positive energy and a spirit of teamwork among students, parents, faculty, and the administration.
