School Notes

  • Democracy-based, hands-on, no-graded school following a traditional one-room-schoolhouse model of teaching children wherever they are academically. Our two rules: 1) Be kinder than you want to be 2) Don't interfere with learning.  Our main emphasis is on helping people get along with each other while collaborating through problem solving and communication.
