What grade levels are you currently enrolling? 2018-06-11T16:55:52-07:00

Da Vinci Tree will eventually be a K-8 school, but currently we are only accepting enrollment for grades K-6.

Some of your photos look, well, not professional. What’s going on there? 2018-06-11T16:55:30-07:00

All of our photos are of real students that our staff has worked with that agreed to be featured! We’re proud to show real students doing real activities.

Who are the teachers at Da Vinci Tree Academy? 2018-06-11T16:55:05-07:00

We have four teachers lined up for our first year. As classes fill up, we will be announcing each teacher to the enrolled families. All of our teachers are highly qualified, skilled individuals who currently work at other companies or other schools. We do not want to endanger their current employment by pre-announcing them before we have the enrollment to support them.

The website says you have small class sizes. How small is small? 2018-06-11T16:54:21-07:00

A class could be as small as 12 students or as large as 23. We’re aiming to keep our average class around 20 students. Legally with our state filings, we have the flexibility to put up to 26 students in a class. Each of our classrooms are around 1,200 square feet so we have have the space to do so, but we want to avoid having that many students in a single class. If we do have that many in a class, we will also have a teacher assistant as a permanent member of the class.

Can we do a school tour? 2018-06-11T16:53:54-07:00

Yes! Our building is in the final stages of remodeling, but will be available to tour starting in July, 2018. We’re really excited for it!

Can kids keep the iPads over the summer? 2018-06-11T16:53:29-07:00

The short answer is yes. We haven’t decided on the specifics yet, but we want students to be able to continue to explore and learn through the curriculum, apps, and creative tools that they have access to during the school year.

I’ve heard that all students get an iPad at Da Vinci Tree. Is that true? 2018-06-11T16:52:28-07:00

Yes. Our school uses iPads as part of the curriculum so all students are given them. In the younger grades, students are not required to take iPads home for homework. Starting in third grade, taking the iPad home to do homework is mandatory.
