Our director, Ms.Leni Cramer Ed.D. has been an educator for over 40 years. She has worked as an administrator, classroom teacher, early childhood specialist, reading specialist, and educational diagnostician.
Dr.Cramer founded Rowan Tree Education Cooperative to provide an educational resource for highly capable and talented children and their families that would involve members of the community in providing instruction in foreign language, art, music, dance, and drama integrated with the basic content areas; literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies. ;l
The cooperative is named after Dr. Cramer's grand-daughter, Rowan. "I want Rowan to be part of a learning community that places the emphasis on a child's strengths and allows for differentiation of instruction based on each child's intelligence strengths, interests and needs."
Dr. Cramer's goal is to create a learning environment for children that encourages community service and care for the environment in addition to an emphasis on all academic areas and the liberal arts.
We offer an integrated curriculum with a structured inquiry based approach to learning. Our goal is to encourage children to be global thinkers who are able to incorporate their skills, attitudes, and actions to create a more peaceful and compassionate world.
We are currently pursuing non-profit status so we may offer tuition based on family income.
