Our teacher and parent community empowers individuals to love learning, cultivate relationships, embrace nature and engage with the world as innovators and catalysts. Our school recognizes humans as natural learners and respects students' rights to collaboration, choice and play within an academic foundation. We believe that a project-rich curriculum fueled by Passion Projects and real-life experiences will prepare our students to be critical thinkers who become lifelong learners and active contributors to the global community.
