School Notes

  • Sabot at Stony Point is an independentschooleducatingchildrenin Preschool (ages 2 1/2 to 5), LowerSchool(KindergartenthroughFifth Grade) and Middle School (SixththroughEighthGrade).
  • We offer a purposeful, intellectuallyrigorouscurriculumthatcultivates a spirit of inquiry and alife-longloveoflearning.
  • Statement of Philosophy
  • We believe that when educationnurturesstudents`innatemotivation to learn and provides toolsandstrategies forresearch,it equips them to acquireinformationindependently, tothinkimaginatively and critically, andtoinvestigate questionsbeyondthose directly addressed bythecurriculum. Further, webelievethat when children feel ownershipofand accountability fortheirlearning, they are likely to extenditbeyond theirformalschooling to become true lifelonglearners.Ourphilosophy atSabotat Stony Point is rooted in our viewof thechild, which inturnleads to beliefs about learning andteaching,and todecisionsabout program and curriculum.
  • Our View of the Child
  • We believe that children are born thinkers andtheoristswho,fromtheir earliest months, observe and experiment inordertounderstandtheir world. Children are naturallycuriousandcreative, motivated toacquire knowledge and toseekunderstandingby developing, testing,and refining theories.Webelieve thatthese dispositions, whennurtured andsustained,contributepowerfully to learning andunderstanding.
  • Our Beliefs About Teaching
  • Teachers are both guides and fellow travelersinthecollaborativelearning process. They are responsibleforpreparingthe learningenvironment; posing questions;conductingcarefulobservations;listening deeply; documentingwork;usingdocumentation to helpstudents revisit and extendtheirthinking;scaffolding student workby contributing informationandskills;linking students to resourcesthat mightsupporttheirinvestigations; and making students` learningvisibletothemselvesand others.
  • We view teaching not as a static set of skills, butasadynamicprocess, visible in our culture of researchonandcommitment toteaching. Our teachers are researchersaswell,learning constantlyfrom one another, contributingexpertiseandinsights throughmentoring, observation,andco-construction.External research andresources are crucialtoteachers` work, butmuch of the facultydevelopment that definesandenhances ourpractice takes placeinternally and in ongoingfashion,as teachersshare perspectives,take risks, offerconstructivecriticism,encourage and motivate oneanother in aclimate of mutualinterestand respect.
  • Our Beliefs About Curricula and Program
  • We believe that children`s spirit of inquiry, aswellastheirinvestment in and ownership of work, aresustainedwhenadultstreat their interests and questions withseriousnessandrespectnot least by devoting the time needed tofullyrealizeaninvestigation or project. Careful choicesaboutcurriculumcontentand breadth also contribute to these goals.Wefavorconcepts andquestions that help students to acquire thetoolsofresearch in avariety of disciplines; help studentstoachievespecified learningobjectives; yet provide latitudeforstudents toexplore relatedquestions and themes.
  • Our Community
  • Community played an especially important roleintheSabotSchool`s history: the school was established by agroupofparentsseeking a progressive educationalalternativefortheirpreschool-age children, and remainedparent-governeduntilthemerger. At the heart of the Sabot School`svision, asitevolvedover the years, lay a belief inindividualresponsibility,respectfor others, and a commitment to thecommunityas a whole.Thesevalues abide today: we believe that asupportiveandrespectfulcommunity is the foundation of our school.Sabot atStonyPoint isa learning community where knowledgeandunderstandingareconstructed in collaboration with others; itisademocraticcommunity where everyone teaches and everyonelearns.Wevaluerelationships and cultivate connections.
  • Our size facilitates this culture: we are largeenoughthateachdivision forms its own community, but smallenoughtofostercross-division interaction and relationships.Forthe2015-2016academic year, our community includes 149 familiesand50facultyand staff members. Our preschool has 41 students,94areenrolledin our lower school, and 50 in our middleschool.Ourfamiliesrepresent a range of racial,ethnic,religious,occupational andsocio-economic backgrounds.
