As we conclude the 2018-2019 school year, I reflect on the remarkable growth of our children. They have blossomed and developed, each in their own way, as unique individuals.

Spring was filled with beautiful events that celebrated our connection as a community. From our Community Day focused on the Earth to the Fiesta & Fun(draiser), a sense of collective consciousness for the planet and its youngest generation was heightened. Thank you to the marvelous mothers who partner with our program to raise responsible, engaged citizens. We adored celebrating you at our Mother’s Day Brunch.

With gratitude, I would like to thank the children, atelieristas and teachers for the extraordinary classroom artwork that was auctioned at the event. The children pour passion and talent into every piece. We showcased their remarkable work at the Night of the Arts & Italian Dinner.  We closed out our last day of school with a beloved annual tradition – Bicycle Day. The children seemed to have a wonderful time enjoying their last day with their friends and teachers.

Our School

We believe children are unique, highly capable beings who develop at their own pace. It is the role of educators to nurture, support, and celebrate each child as an individual.

We cultivate the ability to wonder, to question, to explore, to discover, to think critically, and to be compassionate as students pursue their interests while mastering the skills required to be happy, effective members of society.

We are a community that nurtures the socio-emotional well-being of each individual, so they can become a well-rounded citizen of the world. Students are guided to master major concepts, processes and skills as they build connections between ideas.

Children are given opportunities for self-directed inquiry as well as collaboration with their peers. The goal is to teach children “how to think, not what to think” as they prepare to be outstanding global citizens.

La Piazza Academy is a loving environment that has nurtured a love of reading, an appreciation for the arts, and a healthy sense of self in my child. It has also helped him become fully bilingual, and with their Mandarin program, soon to be trilingual.

I value all the teachers and their daily commitment to my son and recommend this school to my friends without hesitation.

Our oldest son has been attending for 2 years now and we recently enrolled our youngest. Both boys are super happy. It says a lot about a school when your kids are eager to attend school.

LPA, in my opinion, is the best pre school. It’s such a cozy and nurturing environment for kids. They have great teachers that truly care for your child. And the academic program is A+. I’d definitely recommend this school for any parent.

Ericka S.

My son has attended La Piazza Academy since it’s opening and now as a Kindergartner has a deep love and enthusiasm for learning.

I am so grateful to have found this special school and would recommend them to any family looking for a unique educational experience, that focuses on the social, emotional and intellectual development of each child.

My son loves La Piazza. He runs to the door every day excited to go to school. The teachers are fantastic and truly care about my child’s well-being and education.

She is always present, available, and communicative. You can tell that everyone at the school loves working there. It’s a great environment and I am so happy my son goes there.
