The Miquon School is an independent, coeducational elementary school using innovative, child-centered teaching practices grounded in our 90-year tradition of Progressive education.
Our student body is comprised of approximately 150 children in nursery through sixth grade. Classes are mixed-age groups, typically 16-20 children in size, and led by a co-teaching partnership. Time spent outside on our 10+-acre campus — including wooded areas, fields, and a creek — is an integral part of every child’s Miquon experience. We value independent thinking, varied individual and collaborative approaches to learning, authentic assessment methods, and creative, child-focused approaches to curriculum development.
The Miquon School does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation in the employment of staff, admission of students, granting of financial aid, or the administration of school policies. We are a community that is diverse along ethnic, economic, and religious lines, and we seek applicants who represent and broaden that diversity.
The Miquon School is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools, the Association of Delaware Valley Independent Schools (ADVIS), the Delaware Valley Association for the Education of Young Children and the Progressive Education Network.
