Since 1925, Peninsula's mission has been to provide a child-centered education community that promotes the development of the whole child. Teachers and parents work together to foster creativity, independence, joy of learning, personal responsibility, and self-esteem as well as academic excellence. The success of this mission has depended upon the creation of an "extended family" of children, faculty, and parents. Teachers and parents provide the guidance, trust and unconditional support necessary for children to experiment and learn about themselves and their world. The school's goals are to help children build a positive self-image; to help children grow in all areas: perceptually, intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically; and to nourish children's natural creativity and desire to learn through a wide variety of experiences.Peninsula School is a member of the Progressive School Network.
Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
