We believe that...
- Learning is developmental. Therefore, students should receive instruction within their zone of proximal development (regardless of grade level).
- Learning should be collaborative
- Assessment should be authentic
- Learning should be child-centered
- Students should be able to work independently and cooperatively
- We are all (teachers, students and parents) responsible for working together to build a true sense of community
- There should be cross-age learning in multi-age environments
- Students work best in a non-graded and ungraded environment
- Learning should involve hands-on, project-based, integrated and thematic learning
- Students are most successful when there is parent involvement
- Teachers should use a variety of resources
- The learning community should value: problem-solving, creativity, reflection, risk-taking and student voice & choice
- Students should view themselves as active members of the global community.
- An emphasis on empathy and perspective-taking is an essential component of a child’s learning.
