Ahb Community School

  • AHB Community School is a small, secular private school serving kids aged 5-14 years old.
  • The philosophy behind AHB is that education is the pursuit of knowledge; a pursuit which occurs as much outside of the classroom as in it.
  • Our part-time schedule (3-4 days/week) allows students ample time to attain the knowledge, seek the adventure, and develop the relationships that lie beyond the four walls of the classroom.

AHB is an amazing learning community. For us it has been the perfect mix of academic rigor (challenging each students at their appropriate level) and a warm social-emotional learning environment. The open-ended projects and hands-on learning keep my kids engaged and will serve them well in life after school. Between my two children, over the past 5 years we've experienced life at almost every level of this K-8 school and have found great teachers and learning at every step.

I love it here because my kids are so happy to come to school......even after 4 years, and because the community and the teachers are so warm and welcoming. My kids are working at or above grade levels compared to more traditional schools even though they are at school fewer hours and learning in a very different way, mostly through projects and hands on experience.
