School Mission: Leonardo da Vinci K-8 School is a community dedicated to the development of the whole child as a literate, curious, and inventive person, responsible for preserving and creating beauty in cultural and natural environments.  LdV fosters this Renaissance child of the Arts and Sciences model through Integrated Thematic Instruction.

School History: Leonardo da Vinci School (LdV) was established in 1989 as a kindergarten through 8th grade school site and today there are now 886 students enrolled.  The student makeup includes one early kindergarten class, four classes at each grade level from kindergarten to third grade, three classes for each grade level from fourth to sixth grade, and 156 middle school students. Students in middle school grades 7 and 8 rotate to six different classes and are taught by teachers who hold single subject credentials and experience teaching high school.  Students are taught through board-adopted texts, thematic instruction (Highly Effective Teaching formerly called Integrated Thematic Instruction), and mastery projects (long term, in-depth projects supported by written report and oral presentation). In addition, LdV incorporates the following into thematic units used at every grade level: 8-10 learning field trips, large end-of-unit projects, research projects, oral presentations, science instruction, social science curriculum that connects to the English Language Arts Program, and math that covers the four common core domains. We are dedicated to educating the whole child through Integrated Thematic Instruction.

Enrollment: We have scheduled 23-24 tours for families who are looking at Leonardo da Vinci School for 2024-2025. There are three steps. Attending an LdV tour does not guarantee enrollment or put your child in the lottery. Families have three steps to go into the lottery for potential enrollment.
