Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our goal is not simply to teach, but to create life-long learners. To this end, we encourage each child to experience education as exploration and learning as a joyful process. We help students develop the abilities they will need for future learning, including the ability to ask intelligent questions. We also support children in discovering their passion, their unique contribution to life.

We feel we have succeeded when students leave school knowing who they are and being comfortable with that person, having had fun and having gained the skills and experience they need to become responsible, independent citizens of the world.
