Employer Description
The Independence School, an independent, co-educational day school for age 3 through 8th Grade, provides an exceptionally strong academic foundation and so much more. We educate the whole student, preparing him or her emotionally and ethically for whatever lies ahead. At Independence, students learn to think for themselves. They learn independence.

Independence's setting offers children a nurturing, community school feel where all students and their families can be known and appreciated. Our common philosophy and academic leadership team guide us in our mission and ensure that our sequential curriculum spirals upward through the grades to allow for distinct academic unity while also guaranteeing individualization.

Independence is situated on 90 acres in the Pike Creek Valley, with easy access to Wilmington, Newark and Hockessin, as well as nearby Maryland and Pennsylvania communities.
Diversity Mission Statement
We value the contributions of the cultural traditions which form our national heritage and believe that a diverse and inclusive community provides a strong and rich learning environment. The school teaches a respect for the views and rights of others, whether individuals or groups, regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, family structure, gender, gender identity, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status. We believe that respect for differences creates learning opportunities and increases engagement for all.

  • Encourage and develop cultural empathy and involvement across all areas of school life
  • Engage in thoughtful and proactive efforts to encourage and welcome diverse perspectives
  • Promote character development and personal integrity to develop sensitive moral citizens
  • Create a welcoming environment by integrating our values of integrity, respect, and social responsibility
