Mission & Principles
Empower children, families, educators, and local community through education that connects us to the natural world, emphasizes belonging, and cultivates knowledge of self.
Thriving communities of people who are secure in themselves, engaged in local communities, and connected to the natural world.
High quality education is responsive to individual students and local contexts and seeks authentic connections among students, teachers, family, and community.
Children and educators co-create an emergent curriculum that gives children ownership of their learning and empowers our teachers to create rich learning experiences that are guided by our students’ interests. By giving children a voice in their educational path and trusting them to engage in decisions about their learning and their lives, we support children in developing a sense of themselves as capable and deeply engaged in the world around them.
