School Notes

Our small, community-based campus supports the development of deeply enriching relationships between students, educators, and families. We explore the following areas:
  • Personalized Project-Based Learning: Educators use a proven cycle of learning that aligns with how children learn best.
  • Multi-Age Programs: Two-year age bands replace traditional grades; our programs challenge and support students at their individual level of knowledge and skills.
  • Learning Beyond School Walls: Small, community-based campuses blur traditional boundaries between school and community. Exploring the community and bringing experts into our schools grounds learning in real-world experiences.
  • A Whole-Child Approach: A deep learner profile for each student that goes beyond grades and test scores, incorporating knowledge, skills, and habits-and evolves with your child.
  • A Bigger Purpose: Students and parents contribute to co-creating a platform that not only powers our schools but also aims to improve education for all children.
