Learn more about TSMSOC
Our Reggio-inspired school looks at each child individually creating a program based on the principles of respect, responsibility, community, spirit and environment.
TSMSOC provides daily authentic experiences outside of the traditional classroom, often utilizing Forest Park as an alternative campus. We offer a variety of extracurriculars including music lessons, robotics, yoga and more to capture the different interests of our students.
Our goal for each student is to create a love of learning while understanding the curriculum being presented through relationship building, curiosity and exploration.
Daily participation and exposure to music and performing arts is naturally integrated into life at TSMSOC. Our music program not only introduces our students to a love of music but it brings out a level of confidence in them that is powerful to watch unfold.

Our art studio offers our students a place to explore, experiment and tap into their creativity. Our studio art program is integrated into our students curriculum starting in the toddler years and going through 8th grade.
There is no limit to what artistic avenues are explored here at TSMSOC – color mixing, sewing, woodworking, foam board design, sculpting, painting, sketching, printing, and bookmaking are just some of the favorites.

Our students at TSMSOC are outside everyday, multiple times a day. We believe in using our surrounding community as an extended classroom and we teach our students how to use the natural environment for physical education.
Character development, collaboration, and team-work are daily parts of this program. Our P.E. program begins with our toddler students, they work to promote expressive and effective movement, development of motor skills, spatial awareness, self-management and social behavior.
As our students get older, the P.E. program advances where they will bike in Forest Park daily, swim, skate, hike, camp, ski and more.

Our science program encourages students to question, research, experiment, and reflect on diverse subject areas. Often you will find science projects collaborating with studio art projects or students will explore nature during P.E. and bring questions back to the science room.
We strive to make our students to be independent thinkers and find new ways to observe the world around them. Our science program offers our students a place to combine creativity and experimentation in fun setting where they don’t even realize how much they are learning!
Our older students students dive deeply into biology and the human body, as well as inorganic and organic chemistry. Additional units on robotics, physics and botany are also woven into student experiences. They are given the tools to use science in the kitchen and many real world scenarios.
