  • Our multi-age classrooms help students develop relationships with the same teacher and community over a two- or three-year period.

  • Our philosophy focuses on empowering students to be problem solvers and peacemakers. 

  • Instruction is based on hands-on learning, connectedness to nature, social justice and inclusion.
