Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"In the belief that children are people with minds, bodies, feelings, rights and responsibilities, we are concerned with providing a climate in which all parts of them can grow. We think that education has to do with the development of a person - not a mind or a body, or a psyche. A basic goal is to help each child develop a confident sense that he is a worthwhile person. From there, we work to help each child appreciate and enjoy other people. We believe that it is extremely important to help a child develop his natural curiosity and excitement about learning to become a person who can think; who can pursue his own interests; formulate questions that are important to him and find ways to discover answers to these questions. "
