  • #2 Scots Develop An Original Voice and Vision...

    Our goal is to develop creative thinkers and inquirers. We believe that to be successful in school as well as in life, children must develop skills that enable them to work with others, bring their individual voices and perspectives to a challenge, and gain a comprehensive and global understanding of historical and current issues. To achieve this, we are the only school in Florida to provide an innovative, international curriculum, which includes Honors, Advanced Placement (AP), and International Baccalaureate (IB) courses vertically aligned from JK - 12 on one campus.
