project-based learning

Our Vision

We will transform education at all stages of the educational continuum so that people will be able to live happy, fulfilling lives and become positive agents of change.


Theme & project-based learning

At Pear Tree School, we meaningfully integrate learning. Rather than traditional siloed subjects, our lessons are built around themes and projects that develop and integrate multiple skills and concepts, allowing students to practice any combination of academic subjects at once. Students are appropriately challenged academically, socio-emotionally, and physically.

Combined grades

Research demonstrates that children in combined grades have access to a greater range of academic potential and influence, stronger teacher-student connection, more positive peer interactions, more natural opportunities for student leadership, and more collaborative and independent learning. Therefore, we offer five combined-grade programs, as follows: Early Years (Grades K-1), Primary (Grades 2-3), Intermediate (Grades 4-5), Lower Middle (Grades 6-7) and Upper Middle (Grades 8-9) – with Grades 10-12 coming soon!


Physical & food education

With an hour of daily physical education, our program extends far beyond traditional sports! Students also learn academic and socioemotional concepts, like human kinetics, math, strategy, teamwork, psychology, leadership, and perseverance. It’s not just sport for the sake of sport.

Through our Healthy Hot Lunch program, students learn about the food they’re putting into their bodies – turning even mealtimes into an opportunity for learning and socializing!


Unparalleled quality of teachers

We employ teachers only of the highest caliber, since they are the heart and soul of a school. All of our teachers are masters-qualified, and demonstrate the knowledge and growth mindset promoted by Pear Tree.
