Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"This explanation builds on the description of del Sol expressed in other written materials in our information packet wherein we shared our emphasis on the following key aspects of our educational philosophy:
- the richness of‘the whole' child: simultaneously physical, cognitive, social, emotional, personal, and intrapersonal/spiritual.
- the individuality of each child and the multiple intelligences within: Linguistic, Logical/Mathematical, Visual/Spatial, Bodily/Kinesthetic, Musical, Naturalist, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal and Existential/Spiritual.
- our unique environment of freedom and ‘possibilities' environment, grounded in caring, supportive, well-structured programs, impels children's co-activity, self-motivation, selfdirection, creativity, and engagement in the higher level thinking skills of analysis, synthesis, critical thinking, and creative problem solving.
- strong relationships not only with others but with themselves, cultivating inner resources and skills for developing self-awareness, personal empowerment, moral character, and the honoring of one's inner spirit."
