School Notes

Sabot at Stony Point was created in 2007 through the merger of Sabot School, an innovative early childhood program, and Stony Point School`s PreK through 8th grade offerings. Both schools were founded by parents working with educators to bring change to Richmond`s education landscape. In 1993, Sabot Preschool began to work under the inspiration of the Reggio Emilia Approach. (link to educators section for definition) Our experience with Reggio-inspired practice was so powerful that parents advocated to have that philosophy as the basis for further education, thus our kindergarten 8th grade curricula, anchored by the 5 Rs, were born. 

Today all Sabot students experience an engaging education, appropriate to their age, with these common traits and values: 
  • RELATIONSHIP: The web of connections among children, teachers, and parents a knowledge network in which each person`s questions and understanding informs the others`.
  • RESEARCH: The process of learning how to learn; the tools for investigating questions that students will face throughout their lives.
  • REPRESENTATION: The process of making one`s thinking visible through many formats such as digital media, the visual arts, and the expressive arts including writing.
  • REFLECTION: John Dewey reminds us, "We do not learn from experience-we learn from reflecting on experience." Enough said!
  • REACH: Our ethic of best work in which we encourage students to stretch themselves by taking intellectual risks, sustaining effort, and embracing challenge.
