General School Mission

"Our school goals are based on the idea that the child is an individual with social, physical, mental and emotional needs that deserve to be addressed by the curriculum and the environment.
Goal 1: To provide a curriculum for the social, emotional, physical and academic needs of the child.
Goal 2: To design, create and maintain an environment that allows for learning in a natural, spontaneous, self-directed way and provides for individual differences.
Goal 3: To provide parents with information and support that allows them to be active participants in the child's school life while pursuing their own personal and career goals.
Goal 4: To maintain a school staff whose job it is to support child and parent goals by developing and maintaining a nourishing classroom, a supportive administration and outreach to parents and community.
