School Notes

  • The elementary school focuses on the beauty of humanity and all that we share in common and celebrates the heritages and cultures of each community.  While building a strong academic foundation in each child, we are creating a microcosm of the global society we envision for a peaceful future.
  • As of September 1st, 2018, Golestan is an International Baccalaureate* (IB) candidate school for the Primary Years Program (PYP). This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School in 2021. IB World Schools share a common philosophy a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education.
  • The school curriculum integrates research-based best practices in the classroom (both indoors and outdoors) such as Common Core and NCSS Science Standards, with a hands-on, experiential pedagogy. Our elementary school is the place where students nurture their love of learning, their humanity, and their innate sense of justice. It is a school where every child is a changemaker who is empowered to create positive change by being resourceful, kind, innovative, conscious, creative, and engaged. It is a school where the individual child and the collective community of children are equally valued.
  • This idyllic space, with complex chemistry in cooking class, abstract math in the maker`s lab, and hands-on messy science, feels more like a beautiful home than an institution. It is a place that smells like baked bread, tastes like fresh greens, and sounds like the United Nations.
