Feynman School plans to offer in-person instruction Monday through Friday for the 2020-21 school year. Class sizes are limited to a maximum of 10 students. Please call for updates.

Feynman School is an internationally recognized school for academically gifted students. Our experienced teachers recognize that gifted learners are bored by repetition but joyful and motivated when learning something new. We offer favorable student-to-teacher ratios; place no ceiling on academic achievement; explore authentic science and technology; and provide a supportive environment in which learning is interdisciplinary and fun. Upon graduation, Feynman students are prepared to excel at the area’s most elite private high schools and public magnet programs. We emphasize higher-order critical and creative thinking, deep content mastery, collaboration, and effective communication.

Feynman’s close-knit community (albeit socially distanced for now) promotes student success. Here, students build lasting relationships with intellectual peers as they embark on a journey of talent development and creative production. As one graduate puts it: “Feynman is about more than just a better future; it’s also about a better today.”
