Nurturing the whole individual on the journey to becomING A Self-Confident Scholar
We do things a little differently around here, and it’s one of the reasons we have such successful students. As an independent private school, we don’t teach to a test. We are committed to an approach that has been shaped by 85 years of positive experiences and proven methodology, with thought-leadership from the area’s finest educators. We foster the joy of learning while providing a challenging curriculum of core subjects, liberal arts, and the intelligent application of evolving technology. Our students meet our efforts with enthusiasm. We believe creating a partnership between faculty, family, and student makes a big difference in our outcomes.
Our quiet campus nestled in South Highlands gives our students room to soar.
Developing a lifelong love of learning.
Play is the underpinning foundation of all learning in preschool. Teachers set up an environment of purposeful learning centers and activities. For young children, play is their work. Each preschool class is taught by a certified early childhood teacher and an assistant. There is a half day or full day option with carpool pickup available at noon and 3:00 p.m. The Southfield Extended Day program is available until 5:30 p.m. and early drop-off are available beginning at 7:30 a.m.
A Message From Gordan Walker
“Whether you have heard about us from a friend, a sister ISAS school or through social media and our website, I bid you a warm welcome to our community of learners. Having served the School for over 20 years, I feel confident that you will be delighted by the joy in our children’s faces, the quality of our educators, the balance of our program and the way our campus facilities help us achieve our vision “to develop a lifelong love of learning.”
The other big thing I loved about Southfield was that it was warm, like a big family. That school was like my home: I have so many memories there.
I really recommend this school.

Years of Excellence
The vitality of a community is enhanced by its diversity, and our commitment to learning goes hand in hand with a commitment to safeguarding diversity in our student body and faculty. We seek to create an atmosphere that challenges us to open our minds and hearts to others, to understand and celebrate our differences, whatever they may be, and to discover common ground. At Southfield School, we embrace and celebrate all cultures. We welcome the opportunity to expand and enrich our Southfield family. Southfield is committed to seeking diversity of race, religion, and ethnic origin among its students and faculty.
