"We see the child, every child, as a gifted child for whom there has to be a gifted teacher."
-Loris Malaguzzi, Founder of the Municipal Preschools of Reggio Emilia
What Makes Us Special
photo of Ochoa School

Ochoa, a school where learning revolves around real world challenges and is  highly contextual and individualized.  We don't simply teach the WHERE and WHEN  but go much deeper.  We challenge our scholars to ask the WHY and HOW. With this approach, our children understand more, and have a broader perspective  not easily found in other academic environments.  Ochoa scholars are more curious,  more introspective, and gain valuable insight into their own heads and hearts.
