Elementary & secondary School Philosophy
In the elementary & secondary school we recognized that school must be a safe and encouraging environment that fosters risk taking necessary for the full development of a child. Realizing that children are motivated to learn when they experience success and develop understanding, teachers include finding and using information, making connections across the curriculum, and organizing learning around new concepts.
We believe that children take responsibility for their learning when they understand what it means to learn, to be reflective, and to set and personal learning goals. Knowing that children have their own unique learning styles, lessons are structured to meet the needs of all learner’s in the classroom with ongoing assessment strategies and timely feedback to support continuous learning.
