Program Description:
Our morning focus is the core instruction of language arts and math. Three days a week we have Community Time in grades 1–5 to provide an opportunity for social problem solving, caring, sharing and decision making in a multi-age setting. Four days a week we have a project block in which students investigate open-ended questions and apply their knowledge to produce authentic work. Projects further develop, extend and enhance core skills and include community-based activities. We also partner with local artists and community resources to provide music, theater, video, fine arts, culinary arts and creative writing/poetry. Our core values are: Inclusive and Welcoming, Respectful and Compassionate, Creative and Scholarly and Safe
