TEACHING FROM OUR CORE VALUES
We are a Community Our school community operates as a family. Our supportive environment allows safe space for teachers to take risks in their practice and grow professionally.
We Connect with Each Other, Our Environment, Our Neighborhood, & Our World Connection with students is critical. One-on-one relationships with students will break down barriers and open doors for deep learning. Our place-based approach uses the built and natural environments around us as a foundation for learning, bringing authenticity and personal connections for students.
We Care Care for one another (among students, families, staff, and school-wide) is at the core of our thinking. As a Community School we are a resource hub for students, families, and our surrounding community that can be responsive to unique needs. We care deeply about equity for all students across racial, socio-economic, and other boundaries.
We Question We build on the inquisitive nature of children to drive our project-based, arts-integrated curriculum, with the goal of fostering self-directed critical thinkers. We also constantly reflect on and adjust our own practice as a school.
We Collaborate Our shared governance structure enables all stakeholders to participate in critical decision-making for our school. Collaboration and peer-to-peer learning is key, and fostered through a schedule that prioritizes common planning time for teams and ongoing professional development. These are also values we instill in our students through ongoing practice in collaborative classroom work.
We Create What one child easily learns from reading a text, another might need to experience differently to fully process. We prioritize art class and music class, as well as arts-integrated study in the general classroom to appeal to all learning styles. Teachers are not required to practice their own art form, but unique creative expression among teaching staff is welcomed and encouraged.
