Welcome to The Experiential School of Tampa Bay, where each child’s interests and ideas are valued. In our child-centered learning community, students act and interact as individual and collaborative thinkers, doers, and problem solvers, and teachers provide experiences to engage and stretch them.
In a safe, nurturing environment, through hands-on learning and connections with nature and community, The Experiential School develops the character, skills, well-being, and values needed to seamlessly grow as lifelong learners throughout Shorecrest.
Our private school teachers are specialists in Early Childhood Education and are familiar with the latest research on how children develop and learn. They recognize that each child is unique, and purposefully differentiate activities according to the needs of each child. Through a balance of guided discovery and play, the teachers support our students to ensure that they develop the interpersonal and cognitive skills and conceptual understandings that will help position them as the leading students and citizens of the future.

The morning of March 18, 2019, was an exciting one for Shorecrest’s Alpha and Junior Kindergarten students as they settled into the Mike Murphy Experiential School building. When designing new Experiential School indoor and outdoor spaces, every decision made had student learning and growth at its core. The building houses classrooms, a teaching kitchen, a library and media center, dining rooms, and much more!
