At Blue Rock School, we believe that students learn best through direct experience, in a child-centered environment.
We intentionally keep our classes small, giving the teachers the ability to work closely with our children in a hands-on approach.
We offer a challenging academic curriculum, which is balanced and fully integrated with art, poetry, music and drama.
Within our creative classrooms, our teachers also consider the social and physical dynamics of each child, as well as their relationship to the environment and world around them.
Our goal is for our students become thoughtful, well-rounded, responsible human beings.
