Spring Valley School is a Sudbury School where students ages 4-19 develop interpersonal skills and responsibility within a democratic environment, balanced by the freedom to pursue personal interests and passions.
Spring Valley is one of over 80 Sudbury Schools worldwide, based on the highly successful Sudbury Valley School, which was founded in 1968, in Framingham, Massachusetts.
The primary learning for students at any Sudbury School is to discover what their passion is.
This is an intense learning process.  Any Adult understands how few of us truly discover who we are, what we want, and exactly how to "follow our bliss" until late in life, if ever.
Children and Teens who are allowed to pursue this process young become eager to learn the academics that they need to succeed.
In such a climate a student's own interests determine the course of his/her day.
Here the ebb and flow of activity depends upon individually pursued directions. Students often join and share in an activity initiated by someone else; Thus there is a constant interpersonal transfer of information, communication, and enthusiasm between members of the community.
In such a flexible and egalitarian context, interpersonal and communication skills become very important.
