Soundview School is a 501(c)(3) non-profit independent school celebrating its 17th year of delivering excellent education to students.
Founded more than 16 years ago by dedicated parents Alan and Inae Piercy, Soundview School was created to incorporate a combination of core philosophies unlike any other local independent school. The Piercy’s passion and dedication to education is evident throughout the halls of Soundview School, which was built using their emotional, physical and monetary investments.

2009-10 – The Positive Discipline Model was incorporated into the school’s curricular framework to support the IB Programme.
2010-11 – The Critical Thinking Model was incorporated into the school’s curricular framework to further support the mission of the IB Programme.
Soundview School’s curriculum framework is based on three models: the International Baccalaureate Programme, Critical Thinking and Positive Discipline. Soundview’s arts program is also a part of our core curriculum and every Soundview student learns how to express their creativity and self expression through music, movements and visual art.
The school’s solid curriculum framework provides common languages between the teachers and students and offers a consistent way of reinforcing intellectual and character habits so that students practice mastering these skills and habits throughout their Soundview education. The goal of a Soundview education is that creativity and self expression become natural habits of our students and that an arts education is woven through many aspects of their education.
The Soundview School campus was built to meet the curriculum’s needs and provides the spaces necessary to nurture the learning process.
Over the next 17 years we are committed to providing:
- A customized learning environment for all students.
- Engagement in integrated, service-oriented projects.
