The Tutorial School

400 Brunn School Rd

Tel: (505)988-1859
Grades: UG | 7 students
The Tutorial School is an educational community that includes students, staff, and parents joining together for what we believe to be among the most basic and fundamental of human activities: the pursuit of self-knowledge and the exploration, discovery, and understanding of life and the universe in all its multifarious aspects.
The Tutorial School offers a different way to raise and educate children.
Students from 7 to 19 years old pursue their interests in a comfortable, non-threatening environment.
By deciding what and how they want to learn, students develop a sense of responsibility for their lives.
The school emphasizes self-reflection, sensitivity to others, respect, trust, self-motivation, relationship, and the ability to think for one's self.
As a community the students and staff cooperatively run the school and implement the ideals and ideas that are generated.
In this way young people prepare for life as a whole.
We endeavor to provide a thoughtful alternative to the too-often unquestioned assembly-line education offered at many schools today.
More than just student-centered, The Tutorial School is student-run, offering students the opportunity to take control of and responsibility for their education, and their lives.
