Welcome to The Speyer Legacy School
In these pages, you will get a glimpse of the intellectual achievements, and the social and emotional life of accelerated learners at Speyer. Our students thrive in an environment that nourishes the life of the mind and the spirit of the heart. Learning takes place everywhere at Speyer — in classrooms, on the “Boulevard,” in the hallways, in the Makers’ Lab, and in every nook where students can find a place to settle comfortably with a book or engage in lively conversation.
At The Speyer Legacy School, children acquire knowledge and master concepts deeply, broadly, and frequently at breakneck speed. Our teachers are fiercely committed to engaging intellectual inquiry, and our students demonstrate how exciting it is to learn something new every day. Parents reap the benefits of exciting conversation when they ask their children, “What did you learn in school today?”
Speyer students cultivate a range of higher-level cognitive skills and meaningful relationships with intellectually compatible peers, all under the guidance of strong and caring teachers who are also creative learners. We believe that gifted children benefit from meaningful interactions with their peers, and our focus on collaborative and project-based learning helps us realize this vision. Our students are active participants in the learning process.
We invite you to explore our approach and our programs. We are eager to tell you the Speyer story and show you, first-hand, how children thrive in our school. Please explore the images, text, and videos on our site and visit Admissions to schedule a visit to our school.
With best wishes,
Dr. Barbara L. Tischler
Head of School
