Skinner North opened in September 2009. It is currently home to approximately 525 students from Kindergarten through eighth grade.  Some of our amenities include cooking kitchen, 350-seat auditorium, a learning garden, a library, two science labs, two computer labs and a gymnasium with a rock climbing wall.
 
We have a dedicated, experienced and caring staff.  We are committed to providing rigorous, differentiated instruction to all students.  With a focus on teaching the whole child in an academically advanced environment, we work to establish norms of highly successful and socially-motivated individuals in a community that promotes collaboration, leadership, and celebrates the diversity of the students, families, and staff.
