FlexSchool is a private middle and high school that specializes in motivating and supporting gifted and twice-exceptional (2e) students. We individualize our coursework to accelerate when possible and decelerate when necessary, always celebrating strengths and meeting students where they are.

Our Campuses

Online, our "Cloud Campus" offers live, ability-based classes designed around discussion and experiential learning. When needed, integrated support for executive functioning skills, learning challenges, anxiety, advanced social pragmatics, and writing. Students are welcome to enroll in FlexSchool full- or part-time.

In person, our NJ and NY campuses are intentionally located in the heart of the communities we serve, offering convenient transportation access and proximity to local events, activities, and resources.

Why Choose FlexSchool?

Many highly creative, eager gifted students struggle to thrive in school. Some lose their confidence, their sense of purpose and finally their will to try. Twice-exceptional students experience similar challenges. Whether they are impacted by a specific learning disability, poor executive functioning, slow processing speed, ASD, anxiety, or even intense stubbornness to “do things their way,” they are stuck.

Whether online or on campus, our unique approach of ability and discussion-based classes, small class size, and social and emotional support allows students to take risks and thrive in ways they haven’t been able to in their previous school environments. In addition, attending a school with students like themselves provides a space for students to find friends, practice social skills with a forgiving student body, and learn to appreciate and accept the quirks of others.

    Westmoreland Sanctuary

    This week, all FlexSchool students will visit Westmoreland Sanctuary, whether in person or virtually! Students will get hands-on -- and for a few volunteers, feet-in -- and get some fascinating first hand experience with turtle study methods, including trapping for data collection, monitoring turtle health and identifying turtles by their physical characteristics! Our guide will lead students through an understanding of the important role water plays in sustaining all kinds of life, and discuss the ecological roles of different organisms -- and turtles in particular -- in the pond ecosystem.
