Devereux@Waring School for Fourth and Fifth Grade
We believe that education takes place through real-life experiences, both individual and shared, and a complete education therefore requires attention to developing the whole person—mind and body.
The Devereux@Waring School was founded in 2016 and seeks to create an educational experience that blends Devereux’s values with Waring’s vast resources. Located in Beverly at the Waring School campus, our school is housed in one of the main academic buildings and is surrounded by 32 acres of land.
Devereux@Waring’s theme-based, interdisciplinary curriculum encourages students to recognize how studies are interconnected with one another and provides students with a framework that inspires them to pursue their individual interests and passions. Our curriculum includes daily humanities, math, and French lessons, in addition to weekly science instruction, immersion art, physical education, maker space, and biweekly instruction in chorus and theater.
As part of our partnership with the Waring School, our students have access to Waring’s theater, library, gymnasium, computer labs, greenhouse, and maker space, as well as the many trails and fields that comprise the campus.
Through the shared language of French, we seek to create a community that is dedicated to cultural immersion in every aspect of our curriculum. Our French curriculum is designed to be accessible to both students who are new to the language and those who have had significant exposure. Classes are taught in immersion style, and each lesson—whether it be a formal grammar lesson or a vocabulary building game—targets a wide range of abilities.
At Devereux@Waring, we believe that education takes place through real-life experiences, both individual and shared, and a complete education therefore requires attention to developing the whole person—mind and body. Our curriculum incorporates yoga and meditation into our daily and weekly schedule, and students are given opportunities to connect with their natural surroundings and engage in social and emotional mindfulness.
The Devereux@Waring School currently limits its enrollment to no more than 12 students per year. Parents who are interested in enrolling their children in our program are encouraged to contact us as soon as possible. After touching base, we will invite prospective students to spend a day with us and meet the other students, get a sense of the daily routine of our classes, and receive a tour of the school grounds. Parents will have an opportunity during the visit to speak with our teachers, ask questions, and learn more about the school. After each visit, parents will be notified if their child has been accepted or wait-listed for our program. Enrollment decisions are made throughout the year on a “first-come, first-served” basis.
Devereux@Waring School prides itself on providing an exceptionally high quality educational experience at an extremely competitive cost. In addition, we offer a limited number of school scholarships to provide tuition assistance. The annual cost is $12,600 for the 2018-19 academic year.
