  • We believe that...
    • Learning is developmental
    • mission 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
    • Students should receive instruction within their zone of proximal development (regardless of grade level)
    • Students should take an in-depth look at issues & problems and study how these issues cut across national boundaries and concern all people as citizens of a global community
    • Students should examine historical perspectives and how they relate to current world situations.
    • Perspective-taking (being able to see things through the eyes an minds of others) should be emphasized.
