Old Adobe School

Tel: (707)938-4510
  • At Old Adobe School, we strive to stimulate educational growth and learning through the activity of discovery rather than the act of covering prescribed material.
  • Moreover, we feel that true excellence in education occurs when a child's innate sense of joy, curiosity, and buoyancy is nurtured and cultivated.
  • We feel that emphasis should switch from getting each child through school to creating life-long learners.
  • Instead of of providing a direct, non-stop bus trip, it is important that we give children time to experience, enjoy, and truly absorb the bountiful sights along the way.
  • This kind of knowledge has greater meaning, more staying power, and encourages new excursions.
  • We believe that children nourished in this kind of supportive and exciting atmosphere will continue to seek their own vital and varied directions without having to consult a Cheshire Cat along the way.
