Sussex is a K-8 school that empowers students through the arts, the outdoors, and challenging curriculum to develop critical thinking, creativity, courage, and citizenship in all our students.
"As a parent, the most striking thing about Sussex is how much my kids enjoy going to school. This was a foreign concept at prior places. The engaged faculty, creative opportunities, and an emphasis on learning (rather than busy work) make Sussex School a place where my children thrive."
Andy Tegeder, Current Parent
We know you want to feel confident that your child is in a learning environment where they are able to reach their potential. That means choosing a school that understands that there is more to a school than classroom learning, homework, and standardized tests.
School should be fun AND challenging. At Sussex, we believe that children learn best through strong relationships and a nurturing environment. That's why we created a curriculum that is challenging and progressive. Students become confident, enthusiastic learners and caring participants in our local and global communities in their years at Sussex.
Former Sussex students are found all over the world, many with a lifelong passion for learning, a desire for exploration, a penchant for deep-thinking, and a commitment to collaboration and community. Sussex graduates continually return to campus, often sharing memories of a joyous and meaningful educational experience, with relationships that last a lifetime.
