General School Mission

"SHS cares most that your child is successful and happy. Every child is eager and ready to learn at an individual and particular level of readiness. Our curriculum reflects that individuality, and we strive to facilitate the development of competencies. Throughout the year, both teachers and parents will keep in touch with each child's personal learning needs. With the appropriate tools and materials, and the guidance of trained adults, each child will gain knowledge and develop skills to the degree that is right for him or her.
Saxon Hill School strives:
To nurture an excitement for learning
To encourage children to investigate, explore and create through a holistic approach to education
To permit children to enjoy themselves and the wonders and joys of being 3-, 4-, or 5-year-olds
To recognize that self-esteem grows from processing knowledge and skills in a variety of areas
To help children develop skills to resolve conflicts and assume responsibility for their actions
To stimulate children's creativity, autonomy, and ability to take risks as they travel a path of life-long learning
To keep learning active rather than passive
To recognize that every experience is an opportunity to learn "
