Mission / Philosophy / Objectives:

Founded with a deep respect for childhood, The Langley School believes that the balance of academic rigor and a strong social-emotional learning (SEL) program furthers student success. Our academic curriculum – when paired with our custom SEL program – builds students’ intellect, self-awareness, confidence, and character in equal measure. Since 1942, our preschool through grade 8 program has shaped kind, thoughtful, inquisitive learners who are prepared to thrive in the nation’s top high schools and beyond.
