Staff, parents, and students regularly express that Aspengrove’s greatest asset is its sense of community. This starts with our dedicated staff.
Aspengrove School’s teachers bring passion, knowledge, care and fun into their classrooms, inspiring their students to learn and grow as scholars, inventors, entrepreneurs, artists, and leaders.  Teachers encourage curiosity, creativity and risk-taking across all subjects and encourage students to build on their strengths and explore their challenges. Every student at Aspengrove is known and loved. Our small classes, advisories and homeroom structures allow teachers to create meaningful relationships with students (and their families!) that last well beyond their Aspengrove journey.

 “Having taught at Aspengrove School for 13 years now, I consider AGS to be a significant part of my identity.  I love working with colleagues who are my friends, whom I respect for their passion, authenticity, and dedication.  I love being at a young school that is an evolving and expanding community.  And of course, most importantly, the amazing students who make coming to work every day exciting, rewarding, and fun!  I have met so many wonderful young people at Aspengrove.  It has been exciting to see where they end up going and what they end up doing in the world.   The sense of community is what makes Aspengrove School so unique.”
