We cultivate these things for the children’s sake:
A respectful learning atmosphere based upon the recognition that children are first and foremost persons.
A small, ‘human scale’ school intentional about individual, family and community relationships. We limit our class sizes to 12 students per class to reflect this principle.
A rich, relevant, rigorous curriculum designed to intrigue, delight and challenge students. We draw on the best books, regular excursions, the arts, the sciences and the natural world.
Supported, caring teachers with specialized training.
Unique, effective instructional and assessment practices employing ‘retelling,’ self-effort and trained attention.
