How To Apply

Thank you for your interest in Tara Redwood School. We understand that you are placing your trust in us and you can be assured that your child will be educated in a safe, loving, and supportive environment.

We offer a unique curriculum from Preschool through 5th grade students which supports the development of individuals and communities who are insightful and compassionate. Our philosophy is brought to life through a contemplative, integrated, and practical methodology, which equips children with the self- efficacy, competence and resilience to contribute to the quality of life in their local & global community.

Tara Redwood School welcomes students of any color, race, gender, sexual orientation, and all ethnic, national, cultural, social or religious backgrounds.


We invite you to tour our campus so that you will have a personal connection to Tara Redwood School’s curriculum and learning environment. Tours are on going upon request. We often find that your experience on a tour will help tell our story better than any other form of communication. During your initial visit, our Director of School will talk with you about your child and your expectations. This informal discussion allows us to understand more about your family, your own educational philosophies and your child’s needs, unique abilities, and personality. You can schedule a tour online, or call our office for assistance.
