General School Mission

"The mission of The Gardner School is to inspire its community to actively seek knowledge and understanding, think independently, reason critically and embrace challenge. Teaching to the uniqueness of each mind we focus on the process of learning and value the exchange of ideas through collaborative work. While building a knowledge of self and awareness of our connection to other communities, we develop responsibility for earth and humanity.
