School Philosophy

 

We have two overall goals:

  • To help our students deal with the world around them through the application of an inquiry based curriculum and to discover the world within themselves through the study of academic subjects, acquisition of socially approved behavior and the development of cooperative skills, self-motivation and competition within themselves.

 

  • To reach the first goal, we require children to study academic subjects, do research, behave in socially approved ways and develop the skills to work cooperatively, meet deadlines, perform well on assessments and, most importantly, to become aware of their learning process. To reach the second, we encourage them to become self-motivated, to work in their own style, at their own pace and to measure success by their own standards.
