Welcome to our website. We are looking forward to an exciting and fulfilling 2017-18 school year at Pear Tree Point School. Our students are benefiting from our robust Core Knowledge curriculum, small classes, differentiated teaching and strong sense of community. We feel very fortunate to have such a keen and energetic parent organization enriching our experiences at school through community service and social gatherings this year.
In an early all-school meeting, we discussed the many factors that have been impacting Pear Tree Point School and other small independent elementary schools in our region and beyond for a number of years. Due to the cumulative impact of these factors, Pear Tree Point School will close at the end of this academic year.
Despite this decision, we are going to celebrate 22 wonderful years of educating young people: over one thousand three hundred in fact, who have gone on to quality schools locally and abroad. We hear from so many of our alumni/ae, when they visit or write, that the Pear Tree Point School experience provided a significant foundation for their later achievements.
We are dedicated to helping our families find new schools for their children and making this year one filled with treasured memories. It has been a joyful privilege for me and for our faculty members and staff to work in such a beautiful and caring place where so much learning and character development has occurred. Please join us in this year’s celebration of more than two decades of success for our students and their families.
