Magnetic Science Education

Our new elementary science curriculum has ignited curiosity and passion in our classroom. A students-first approach is based on a firsthand exploration of phenomena, where students develop their ability to think scientifically with active investigations and multisensory learning.

Middle School Clubs

Clubs are a middle school favorite for good reason: student choice and a variety of options. From murals to chess, musical theater to basketball, there is something to entice all middle schoolers—where they can explore a hidden talent or nurture a passionate interest.

The most impressive for us was how much the children loved being at Fantis and how it has shaped them as people and the trajectory of their lives. Our daughter is so incredibly happy and faces each day with such enthusiasm. She gets up so early to get into school and be the first there. She has grown into a child we are so proud of. What we realize more than the excellence in the academics is the nurturing, loving, safe environment which has guided her since she was three. There is no way to fail when you have so many hands ready to catch you.
