  • At Grassroots School, students pursue their own educational journeys in a supportive and nurturing environment.
  • The school’s educational philosophy derives from the twin principles of self regulation on the individual level and self government on the community level.

I have watched my child grow socially and intellectually by leaps and bounds in her time at Grassroots. Her interactions with the staff and students at the school have helped to teach her personal responsibility through encouragement and guidance, rather than the more common approach of punitive discipline. The students and staff help instill a curiosity and desire to learn that is often snuffed out in contemporary schools.
