We evaluate student performance, benchmark it against the curriculum, and are constantly making changes to improve understanding.

Engaging Faculty/Interactive Instruction
Small class sizes and differentiated instruction, utilizing technology and interactive multimedia sessions, have proven to be very effective in student learning.  We engage in an inquiry based curriculum and pedagogy which increases student motivation to participate, explore, and learn.

Warm and Caring Community 
The spontaneous connection between administrators, teachers, students and parents is evident from the minute you walk onto the campus. There is great care taken to maintain this vibrant environment and foster connectivity among the members of the school. The spirited interaction between every member of the school community exudes a warm and engaging climate.

Each one is curious to imbibe, immerse, and understand the world. With more than 23 countries represented, there is unity in this diverse community and cultural immersion. 

Our Ethos at Cedar Hill Prep School – Equity for All 
We, the administration, faculty, parents, and students of Cedar Hill Prep are a diverse, multicultural microcosm.  Every member of our school community has an equal voice, empowerment, and pride as a valued stakeholder.  Our core values celebrate our diversity.  This unity in diversity and vibrancy is showcased every day in our classrooms, hallways, and the entire campus as we recognize and celebrate the uniqueness of our diversity.

Well-balanced Arts, Music and World Languages Programs
Every student is immersed in learning fine arts, music, drama, and world languages from preschool through grade 8.  We have found that an interdisciplinary curriculum involving art, music, drama and foreign language fosters inter-cultural competence and global scholarship.

At Cedar Hill Prep School, our attention is focused on every child as we hear the vibrations of interaction among all minds, the urgency in conversations to get across one’s viewpoint, and the love and friendship in the smiles and greetings.
