General School Mission

"Our goal is to help each child develop a positive outlook on life, so that as an adult, he or she will be capable of meeting the changing times with new solutions. This child will not grow to be the victim of events, but will have the courage and knowledge to constructively direct the future.
We strive for an active discipline which originates within the child and is not imposed from without. We believe in the necessity for respect for the child's personality without the dominating influence of the adult, thus leaving the child room to grow in biological independence. The child is allowed a large measure of liberty (not license) which forms the basis of real discipline.
Since the child works from free choice, without competition and coercion, there is not the danger of overstrain, feeling of inferiority, and other experiences which are apt to be the unconscious cause of mental disturbances later in life. We believe in the development of the whole personality of the child, not merely the intellectual faculties, but also powers of deliberation, initiative and independent choice, with their emotional complements. By living as a free member of a real social community, the child is trained in those fundamental social qualities which form the basis of good citizenship."
