School Notes

  • Village School is an inclusive and dynamic learning community that prepares its students for success.We engage children in a challenging academic curriculum that balances developmental and traditional principles of education and embraces a comprehensive and diverse enrichment program. Village School fosters each student's sense of self and inspires social responsibility by integrating character education into a stimulating learning environment. We value the strong connection between home and school that characterizes our community.
  • Academics at Village School encourage learners to take risks, work together, and find areas of passion and expertise. We instill in our youngest learners the ethos of, "if it's not challenging, I'm not learning." This expectation extends beyond academics to include the social emotional world as well. In fact, we know that in order for students to excel they must first feel known and valued for who they are which is why we structure our program to interweave the academic and social emotional realms. We do this through collaborative projects, partnerships, and creating a culture of community of learners. Our small class size nurtures the connections between teachers and students as meaningful and deep relationships are grown. Every student and teacher brings value to the room and we welcome that diversity as it makes us all smarter, more agile in our thinking, and more able to navigate the larger world with aplomb. Whenever possible Village School links the broader world into our students` studies through relationships with other schools, institutions of higher learning, and the business world of Los Angeles community. Our goal is to create learners who move forward sagely and confidently, seeking opportunities to enact change and improve the world.
  • The Village Values - caring, courage, fairness, respect, responsibility, and trust -  provide a framework for the school`s approach to social learning and ethical development. These values guide students on a daily basis to independently communicate and solve problems. Using our models of Community Circles and Family Circles, as well as their daily interactions, students are empowered to cultivate their voice, develop empathy, and internalize the values that support their growth and success.
