Overbrook School’s curriculum challenges children to think critically and master skills in all subject areas. The academic program follows a spiral curriculum which provides constant reinforcement of those skills and allows the students to develop a deeper understanding of the concepts presented. Then, from the knowledge of these foundational truths, other branches of knowledge and learning are formed and deepened.
