Elite Academics – fostering learning, leadership, communication, and character.

Educators

At the Guthrie School, our teaching philosophy incorporates the Socratic and Harkness Methods to develop a life-long love of learning in our students while accelerating their education and work ethic and guiding them in reaching their full potential.

Each Guthrie School educator is hand-selected and highly valued, ensuring we attract and retain the highest quality educators for our students. We don’t stop there! Our focus is attracting top talent, verifying backgrounds and educational aptitude. In our classrooms, students encounter degreed professionals who embrace our core philosophies and are passionate about learning and excited to encourage bright, young talent to learn and grow, preparing them to excel at the next level. Along with our educationally driven focus, we work to expand the physical competence of our students by providing opportunities for physical education, as well as the arts.

Driven by our staff, curriculum, teaching methods, and timeless values, we provide students and families with a premium educational environment overflowing with opportunities.
