The Story of Shrub Oak International School
The vision for Shrub Oak was six years in the making. Their story began with extensive research to identify the ideal location, a location that would give them access to leading experts in the field, and that would be easily accessible for families. They found all that and more in Shrub Oak! After transforming their location into a modern, state-of-the-art education and residential facility, they turned their attention to what has become the essence of Shrub Oak: a truly innovative, trans-disciplinary curriculum, designed to meet each student’s individual goals and needs. And while their story has just begun, they have already witnessed the wonders that a truly trans-disciplinary approach can achieve.
