Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Salmonberry School teaches the whole child. We believe that children learn best at their own pace. We provide students with the freedom, the opportunities, and the tools to discover and pursue their passions.

Our curriculum is rich in language, literature, science, craft and the arts. We integrate strong academics with active learning to bring integrated thematic units to life. This challenges and inspires students to develop as creative thinkers and doers.

Our school community is based on mutual support and respect among students, teachers, and families. At Salmonberry, children thrive in an environment of cooperation and camaraderie. They develop self-respect and appreciation for the different perspectives of others.

Community service projects, a strong multi-cultural focus, and deep involvement with nature's rhythms are central to our program. Through these experiences, students become informed, socially and environmentally responsible citizens.
