Mission: Unite, Inspire, Empower
Vision: What starts here, will soon change the World

Goals for both our SEA Horses and SEA Dragons:
Success begins with a student feeling safe and secure.
Enriched opportunities for hands-on learning that meets the needs of the future workforce.
Academic Rigor to help our students be well prepared for their future.

• To provide a safe and secure learning environment.
• All children are capable of learning, it is our job to help them meet academic success.
• Provide a Rigorous curriculum and electives to meet the needs of our students, as well as prepare them to be successful in high school.


We believe that all students are leaders at The Sanibel School. We will provide every student with the skills necessary to be academically successful as well as to lead a well-balanced life. We believe in the whole child. Helping each student to find his or her passion beyond academics is important, as we believe it is that passion that will keep them motivated to learn new things. Providing time for a rich discussion on topics, and time for students to truly understand their own learning is critical. Students will be taught to track their progress and set goals through a Leadership Binder. Hands-on learning is embraced at the Sanibel School and is especially evident with our strong S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and Environmental Education programs.
