Kindergarten and Grades 1, Grade 2, and Grade 3/4 are held at 76 Charleston Ave. Columbus, OH 43214. The Juniper School will add one grade each year until 8th grade.

The grade school offers a rigorous educational program that promotes well-rounded development:  learning with head, heart and hands. Grade level teachers continue with a class from one year to the next, ideally from Grade 1 to Grade 8. The teacher and children form a community and can work through challenges and celebrations together. Each Fall their learning takes flight without interruption and relationships strengthen. The curriculum at The Juniper School is a spiral. Students and teachers will revisit content time and time again, gaining deeper and more meaningful understanding each year. A long main lesson begins each day and concentrated blocks of study focus on one subject for several weeks.
