Pre-K – 5th grade

Bertschi School educates children to become compassionate, confident and creative learners in a global community.  But this is not just the mission of the school, it’s also how Bertschi operates every day. It’s what we call the Bertschi Way, and it’s what parents, kids and visitors experience as soon as they walk through the doors.

Bertschi’s faculty know children learn in many ways and strive to address individual needs and abilities. Bertschi kids experience cross-curricular exploration and constant creative encouragement. Science, art, math, and drama projects are used to promote different kinds of thinking and fun learning experiences. Students’ interests are developed, discovered, and nurtured. The Bertschi Way means doing everything all the way with heart and soul and attention to every child.

Bertschi students are taught to know who they are, who their fellow students are, and the impact and influence they have on their community. Staff, teachers, parents, and students work together to establish an environment that is inclusive, supportive, and respectful. This is a school that helps develop thoughtful kids full of compassion, confidence, and creativity who are ready for the challenges of secondary education.

Bertschi School is a learning experience to last a lifetime.

ACADEMICS that DEVELOP CHARACTER

Every day, we teach young students from Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth Grade how to take responsibility for their education. Epiphany places ownership of learning and the classroom into the hands of our students, while supporting each child to develop his or her unique voice and individuality.

We build responsibility, collaboration, and social-emotional learning into each grade-level, so that children increase their independence, confidence, and leadership abilities every year.

Innovative, immersive, and integrated lessons with classroom teachers focus on core foundational subjects of Math, Language Arts, Social Studies, and Social-Emotional learning. What differentiates Epiphany from other schools is that we also offer standalone classes taught by subject specialists in French and Latin, Science, Music and Art, Health and Fitness, and Physical Education for all grades.

Epiphany’s rich curriculum is thoughtfully designed to engage, challenge, and cultivate your child.

Every interaction in and out of the classroom enables children to:

    •    Explore their own interests while practicing our shared school values.
    •    Develop their unique voices as they experience and explore new perspectives.
    •    Discover ‘who they are’ as individuals and as part of a caring community.
