Sycamore School to Open in Malibu

By Whitney Levine

The Sycamore School, an independent elementary school dedicated to collaboration, innovation and learning through play and creativity, opens in Malibu Sept. 1, initially serving 20 students ages 6 through 8.

“We are very excited to bring an alternative option for elementary education to Malibu families,” says co-founder Tedd Wakeman. “The world we live in now demands a different approach to education. Students need a learning experience that is continuous, future-focused and engagement-based. We’re giving them just that on this beautiful campus.”

Sycamore also has an idea lab, maker space, adventure room where kids can adapt their own learning environment, tinker zone, greenhouse, kitchen, reading nook/game room, sports court and the school office.

Sycamore offers learning experiences in reading and writing, social emotional learning, enriched learning, technology, field trips, play, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math), unique learning spaces, making and environmental stewardship.

Applications for the 2015-2016 school year are due May 15 and admission is determined on the basis of applications and family interviews. For more details about Sycamore’s mission and educational philosophy, and to download an application packet, visit
