Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Service Learning, and Fine Arts are all subjects that are taught at our school. Our curriculum is strongly focused on developing literacy and math skills during the morning and the afternoons are devoted toward applying those skills toward multi-disciplinary projects that are often student designed. The projects require students to be able to set project goals, create a budget, carry out their activities, assess their learning progress, and evaluate the final outcome of each project. Much of our learning is rooted in a sense of place, encouraging students to honor and serve their local community as they learn. Students are often out of the classroom, on research trips or involved in projects that require them to use academic skills in hands-on settings. In our striving for excellence, we believe that talent can be developed, success begets success, quality requires feedback, the best decisions result in win/win decisions, less is more, and commitment to excellence requires time.
