Our School

ginger_1402Dear Parent,

Thank you for your interest in Touchstone Elementary School in Lake Oswego. I want to take this opportunity to share with you some important information about our school.

Since 1982, we have taken pride in providing a high quality private school education for children in kindergarten through sixth grade. Our parents have complimented us on our warm and enthusiastic teachers, our rigorous, standards-based curriculum and our understanding of the needs of each child.

Our curriculum was designed by the Nobel Learning Education Department, a team of highly-skilled experts in curriculum design, instruction and assessment. We provide opportunities for students to master skills, problem solve, make positive decisions, and practice higher level thinking. Teachers personalize lessons and projects to ensure that instruction is stimulating and challenging for each student. We believe that beyond the core subjects, classes in art, music, technology, Spanish and physical education are essential to educating the whole child.

Rich and challenging content is the foundation of our curriculum; however, students need more than academic knowledge to achieve future success. Building strong character by highlighting core values helps students grow socially and emotionally. Through our Giving Without Walls program, students study social entrepreneurship and learn ways to make a difference in their communities. Past projects include fundraisers for Oregon Food Bank, Any Soldier Project, Empty Bowls Program and Fences for Fido.

Learning and enrichment continue before and after school. Our after school program runs from 3:00 to 6:00 pm, and includes fun and educational activities such as study hall, chess club, soccer, dance, drama, art and much more. We understand life can be hectic, and we are here to accommodate your busy schedule.

Please feel free to contact me to schedule a private tour. I look forward to meeting with you to gain an understanding of your child’s educational needs, and discussing our school’s mission.

Sincerely,

Ginger Schaffer
Principal, Touchstone Elementary School
