Welcome to Tenacre

Every day at Tenacre begins with a handshake as the head of school greets arriving students. This act of trust and personal attention sets the tone for all that follows. At Tenacre, we embrace the elementary years.
As a Pre-K through Grade 6 coed school, we offer a dynamic and exciting environment in which children progressively develop critical thinking skills, become confident and joyful learners, and move forward into higher education and life as caring citizens.

  • Third graders learn about anatomy of the eye and dissect cow eyes

    Tenacre third graders have been learning about the physical properties of light and the physiology and anatomy of the human eye. They dissected a cow eye specimen, which has a similar construction to the human eye. They saw first-hand the anatomical parts that they have been studying. The dissection exercise provided students with a relevant comparison to explain some of the various diseases and problems that arise with the eyes of any typical mammalian organism.
  • Fourth graders smash geodes

    In their science geology unit, fourth graders learned how the three main kinds of rocks are formed, and the physical changes they undergo in the rock cycle. They learned what makes a mineral a mineral and how minerals combine to form rocks. And they put their scientific skills to use, identifying various rocks and minerals by observing and testing for things such as transparency, luster, streak, hardness, magnetism, and acid reaction. Their unit wrapped up with using hammers to break open geodes to expose the beautiful, hidden crystal formations inside!
