About Us

The Independence School welcomes you to our community and our campus, where, during the school year, you will find a vibrant group of learners age 3 through eighth grade. Our well-rounded academic program is unparalleled, and our school environment promotes our core values of respect, responsibility and integrity. During the critical foundation years, Independence students have endless opportunities to learn to learn and learn to lead.

It is Independence’s mission to inspire our students, and that mission doesn’t end in June! We believe that summer activities – even the most fun ones – create exciting possibilities for growth and discovery in many new and different ways. Staffed primarily by our school’s highly qualified faculty and coaches, Summer at Independence will give you a taste of the Independence experience. We invite you to learn more, and we hope to receive the opportunity to share our full program with you.
