About Us

Peregrine School is an independent school that builds children’s capacity to learn, think and do in our ever-changing world. Located in Davis, California, Peregrine serves children from preschool through the 6th grade, drawing students from throughout the Sacramento Valley. Peregrine School educates the whole child, incorporating the latest research on teaching and learning into a child-centered curriculum that integrates hands-on scientific inquiry, critical thinking, wellness and the arts. At Peregrine School, we believe that the purpose of education is not so much to impart knowledge, but to build children’s lifelong capacity to learn. Peregrine prepares children to be the citizens of the future: collaborative, curious, creative,  and possessed of the self-motivation that will allow them  to thrive throughout life.

Our mission is to educate children to be creative, critical thinkers. We utilize the latest research in child development to create child-centered, project-based programs that emphasize the natural sciences, the arts, outdoor education, and environmental and social responsibility.

Peregrine has two campuses in Davis, California. Our South Davis Campus houses both an early childhood center and an elementary program, serving children eighteen-months-old through sixth grade. Our West Davis Campus houses an Early Childhood program for children ages two through five.
