Sycamore School says

Our mission: Sycamore School exists so that academically gifted children can experience the enriched, accelerated education they need to reach their potential and to lead responsible, constructive, fulfilling lives. Sycamore is the only private school in the state of Indiana and one of the few in the nation with the mission to meet the needs of gifted students, preschool through grade 8. Gifted learners have special intellectual, social, and emotional needs. Sycamore's educational environment is both accelerated and enriched. It is designed to help students develop higher-level thinking skills and complete a broad range of academic and artistic projects and products. The curriculum offers greater complexity, more depth, and a faster pace than is typical. Students have stimulating interaction with their intellectual peers and are encouraged to develop the skills and character traits of creative, productive, contributing members of society. Sycamore School values its positive, enthusiastic school climate that supports and nurtures school life.
