- At Sudbury Valley School, students from preschool through high school age explore the world freely, at their own pace and in their own unique ways.
- They learn to think for themselves, and learn to use information age tools to unearth the knowledge they need from multiple sources.
- They develop the ability to make clear logical arguments, and deal with complex ethical issues.
- Through self-initiated activities, they pick up the basics; as they direct their lives, they take responsibility for outcomes, set priorities, allocate resources, and work with others in a vibrant community. Trust and respect are the keys to the school's success.
- Students enjoy total intellectual freedom, and unfettered interaction with other students and adults.
- Through being responsible for themselves and for the school's operation, they gain the internal resources needed to lead effective lives.
