Academics at Triad
Triad School’s goal is to create an academic environment where children can delve into their own interests in greater depths. Students will use these interests to learn and practice foundational skills. These skills will be the building blocks for their educational career.
At Triad, we make learning personal. We believe each student is unique. Our evolving curriculum allows students to learn at their own pace and ability. Our custom curriculum, small class sizes and individual attention supports this approach. Our classrooms are not limited by grade level boundaries. Students are grouped by ability, not age. The design of the classroom takes into account developmental stages and expected educational outcomes. Small class sizes allows for a better understanding of the student’s learning needs. This allows our teachers to appropriately challenge each individual student.

Our Opinion of the Current Education System
At Triad we encourage students to seek unique answers and use critical thinking to solve problems. Critical thinking is a form of learning that goes beyond the memorization and recall of information and facts. It involves authentic thinking. Real world problems are often messy. They are usually unclear. They often have no single right answer. Critical thinking involves asking questions as well as answering them. It goes beyond basic memorization of facts and “right” answers, but employs essential skills like reasoning, logic and creativity not only to arrive at an answer but to support it as well.
