Tessellations, an independent, progressive school tailored for gifted students, was created in 2020 by a group of like-minded parents and educators dedicated to serving the needs of the whole child.
Anne Beneventi, a nationally recognized gifted specialist and visionary educator, leads Tessellations with the heartfelt, enthusiastic support of the entire staff and parent community. All our talented, dedicated staff specialize in and have deep experience educating gifted children.
Our staff built Tessellations’ curriculum from the ground up, optimizing it for gifted distance learning this fall. Our outstanding teachers are doing a tremendous job of keeping their classes engaged, strongly facilitated by our intentionally low student-teacher ratio of less than 6:1. We look forward to meeting in person when the pandemic allows, starting in small groups outdoors in the second semester if we deem it to be safe. In the fall of 2021, we will expand to include grades K-8 and will begin classes in our new campus in Cupertino, CA.
