Creating Our Learning Environment

All staff at our school act as guides, teachers, advisors, mentors, friends and facilitators to our children. For that reason, our recruiting process is long and very intentional. We seek individuals who are committed to non-traditional, constructivist, learner-centered, project-based education.
