School Notes:

  • Integral Education unites the modern aim of World Knowledge (traditional academics, etc.), with the ancient aim of Self-Knowledge (understanding one's innate gifts, talents, personality, etc.). With both, one tends to make better choices in life, choices that often lead to greater happiness and success. Our unique program:
  • Inspires the Joy of Inquiry and Exploration
  • Maintains a low student/teacher ration of about 12:1
  • Utilizes innovative Holistic educational approaches
  • Meets and exceeds California State Standards
  • Includes cutting edge Physical Education programs such as Awareness Through the Body (ATB) and Yoga for Children.
