The mission of Polytechnic School is to develop the intellect, talents, and character of each student in a community of learning dedicated to principles of academic excellence that values the uniqueness and dignity of each member and fosters personal responsibility and service to others.
As a K-12 school, we are able to create a coordinated sequence of learning across all grades and developmental stages. Our Lower, Middle, and Upper School programs provide continuity for students and allow Poly teachers to invest deeply in each child's progress over the long term.
While Poly is nationally recognized for the strength of its programs, the lessons we hope our students take with them transcend those measured by test scores and matriculation lists. A Poly education goes far beyond getting into college—it inspires a lifelong thirst for knowledge, an appreciation of individuality, and a true desire to be of service in the larger world. Our graduates leave Poly ready to fulfill the promise of their own talents and to lead meaningful, purposeful lives.
