After School Programs Offered




We are Truman, where we grow and learn together.

Truman School is a neighborhood school which embraces all students. We believe that children have unique needs. We provide an instructional program which will meet the academic and social emotional needs of your child. Classrooms utilize a blended learning approach to learning which allows students to receive instruction, both teacher directed and online platforms. All students have access to one-toone technology such as iPads, Chromebooks and Interactive Projectors. Your child will have at-home access to online programs which support both remediation and acceleration of learning.


How to Know Truman is Uniquely Right for Your Child:


○ We have dedicated and caring professionals who go above and beyond to help students and their families. 

○ We have an open door policy and understand the need to have a partnership with parents and caregivers.

○ We see students as individuals and address their academic and social emotional needs in ways that promote individual growth.
