The Curiosity Event

We are always curious. What are you curious about?

At Flint Hill, we fuel students’ curiosity, teach them to think like entrepreneurs, and inspire them to blaze their own trails. We believe that learning led by curiosity inspires students to develop passion and purpose. We awaken our students’ curiosity and challenge their critical and creative thinking, leading to deeper understanding and an enduring love of learning. We encourage students at every age to connect with their passions because we’re still curious ourselves.

How Effective Technology Integration Drives Elementary School Student Outcomes

When technology is effectively integrated into the classroom, students can discover, engineer, solve complex problems, share their work and engage in the self-directed learning process that is crucial to innovation. This is what happens at Flint Hill, where these opportunities are integrated throughout the day and are enhanced by applications, thinking routines and opportunities for students to reflect on their learning. Join us for a webinar hosted by Lower School Technology Integration Specialist Jess Henry, who will share how we have thoughtfully integrated technology into our academic program and the impact it has on the student learning experience.
