    Selwyn Academics

    From kindergarten to graduation, the academic experience at Selwyn helps develop useful skills, stimulates curiosity, and instills a lifelong passion for learning. Our teaching philosophy is based on experiential learning and the developmental approach to education, which holds that children are natural learners who develop at different rates. Our Denton Independent School keeps a low student-to-faculty ratio and focuses on academic programs that challenge students to be their best, establishing self-discipline and self-reliance. This is not a school where you will find children huddled over endless worksheets or studying to pass state-issued standardized tests. Our academic environment is interactive. Here students of all ages work together to solve problems, conduct experiments and research in labs, explore the arts, and engage in debates about global issues. Selwyn academics not only prepare students for college, but for education in all forms and settings.

    With a legacy of excellence, Selwyn prepares students for success at the collegiate level as well as to be contributors on a global stage. Selwyn students emerge from their academic journey as…

    • Independent thinkers and creative problem-solvers
    • Highly resilient and emotionally intelligent leaders
    • Prepared for effective citizenship in a global society
     

    If you are looking for a place for your kindergarten, elementary, middle school or high school student to find his or her individual path to success, Selwyn is the place to be.
