About the School

Ashbrook Independent School is a secular, private, coeducational institution whose mission is to "Challenge and Nurture Academically Capable Students". The school includes a preschool, an elementary school, and a middle school.

Ashbrook Independent School believes that educational excellence occurs when a combination of outstanding teachers, a clearly-defined curriculum with an emphasis on the arts and sciences, small classes, motivated students, and a well- equipped learning environment co-exist. When these factors are in place, students learn not only the joy of discovery, but also traditional values such as courtesy, enterprise, self mastery, and the importance of personal responsibility. Our programs support the Jeffersonian ideal of free citizens interacting voluntarily for the common good. Our hope is that in habits of mind an Ashbrook graduate will be ready for the twenty-first century: open-minded and curious, yet able to evaluate ideas critically.

Ashbrook's educators continue to nourish children's joy of discovery and passion for learning and to provide for all children's social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and moral growth. Specifically for younger children, it is important to give special attention to the mastery of those basic skills and concepts that are the foundation of all future learning. As children grow older, they enter a period in their educational experience where they experience a variety of significant changes, both individually and collectively. The range of academic ability and physical and emotional development becomes wide.
