Equipping all students to confidently fulfill their passion and purpose

We believe that the balance of academic rigor and a strong social-emotional learning program is necessary to ensure student success, and our curriculum nurtures both in equal measure. At every grade level, our teachers employ their expertise in child development to judiciously guide and challenge their students to reach the next level. We intentionally plan the curriculum as a rigorous, developmentally attuned progression from each grade and division to the next. By creating a deeply supportive, invigorating learning environment, our entire community encourages our students to take sensible yet meaningful risks, empowering them to grow from both success and failure.

Inquiry-Based Learning

Our inquiry-based curriculum reflects the latest research on how to engage students most effectively – inspiring them to explore multiple strategies and perspectives and express this deeper understanding in their own authentic voice. Rather than rote memorization and teacher lectures, our program emphasizes hands-on experiences that foster critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and creativity – skills our students will need to flourish in today’s changing world.

Social & Emotional Learning

Our custom social and emotional learning program, titled REACH (Raising Emotional Acuity, Cultural Competence, and Health Behaviors), works in tandem with the academic program and Langley’s core values to foster students’ emotional intelligence, multicultural responsiveness, and health and wellness. It focuses across cognitive, academic, social, and emotional domains to ensure that children develop the skills to be confident, empathic, sensitive adults who can self-advocate, stand up for what’s right, and successfully navigate the complexity of relationships.

Langley students grow into self-directed, confident, joyful learners who see themselves not just as students, but as scientists, mathematicians, artists, historians, inventors, and even world-changers. By the end of eighth grade, they are more than ready to take on the rigors of the nation’s top high schools.
