  • We believe children learn through experience and doing. That’s why kids at The Grove School sing, dance, count, write, paint, clang, dig, listen and whatever else moves and excites them.

    Our curriculum emphasizes both traditional academic subjects and hands-on thematic explorations that encourage healthy lifestyles.

  • Supported by smart, positive and infinitely patient educators, children reach key developmental milestones while they learn the importance of being socially responsible.

    So in addition to being fully prepared for kindergarten, children who attend The Grove School have the fundamental beginnings for making healthy choices throughout their lives and contributing to their families and communities.

 
 
 

Here at The Grove School, we believe in educating your children not just for 10 months each year, but for a lifetime. As a current student, I can definitely relate to this.

From a young age, I can remember my first days in school. I was enthusiastic to show up every day, and my teachers inspired me to be like them. As I grew older, my teachers proved to be an even bigger part in my life. In middle school, we were all taught to ask for their help if we needed it, a strange, yet big step for us teenagers. We became more independent, yet the teachers were still there for us. They taught us about high school, what to expect, the future, and prepared us for a lifelong journey.

As soon as high school rolled around, there was no messing around; this was the real deal. I took what I learned from middle school and used it to the best of my ability for this new experience. My teachers  played an even bigger role in our school work (and our lives). I established relationships with them outside of the class room. I always had a favorite teacher each year (not to say that all of them weren’t my favorite)! I could see the relationships of the students to the teachers was getting stronger in high school. Students would talk after class, laugh with the teachers, even sit and have lunch with them. Most importantly, they prepared me for a college experience and instilled a sense of a lifelong learning experience for me.

Now that I am an incoming sophomore in college, the bond between student (and now professor) is still strong. Being on my own is a wonderful experience, although tough at times. Being in college has taught me to be independent and to look for help when I need it. The professors play a big role in the student’s lives, and no where else but college is the lifelong journey more present. After college, anything is possible. Medical school, Law school, a career, a job, anything. The professors have taught me, and will continue to teach me, valuable life lessons that will help me further down the road, and prepare me to be a lifelong learner.

    Once you graduate college, you will continue to have lots of lifelong learning opportunities through job-related continuing education as well as community education/lifelong learning programs wherever you might end up. In the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex, a number of local school districts, including Mesquite ISD, Northwest ISD, Cleburne ISD and Lewisville ISD, offer successful community education programs full of fun and informative classes for most ages and interests. Keep on your lifelong learning path and good luck after graduation. :-)
