Opening Letter


Dear Promontory Families,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and staff, we would like to welcome you to Promontory School of Expeditionary Learning

Promontory offers a different kind of educational program for our students, one that is less structured and requires children to do a great deal of independent, in-depth project work. We are delighted and honored that you have chosen our school to play a central role in educating your child. 

We strongly believe that parents must make informed choices about their children’s education, and we are pleased that you have decided that Promontory will provide the best learning environment and instructional program for your child. We know that this is a decision you have made with great care and reflection about your child’s educational strengths and needs.

At Promontory we believe that children learn best when schools and families work in partnership with each other. An important element of that partnership is ongoing communication. The Family Handbook will inform you of policies and procedures which contribute to the smooth operation of our school. If you have questions or comments, please feel free to speak with the Director or your child’s classroom teacher.

Once again, thank you for making the decision to share your child with us. We are committed to achieving the highest academic and character standards with our students, and we look forward to working with you to ensure each child’s success.

Sincerely, Promontory School Administration and Teachers
