Teachers collaborate intentionally to design school days that engage and inspire young learners. Students start each day in homeroom with Morning Meeting, emphasizing social emotional learning (SEL) and community-building. Students remain in homeroom for the core subjects (mathematics, social studies, and literacy) and visit specialist teachers for science, Spanish, art, music, physical education, and research skills. We never forget that our students are kids–first and foremost–so they have ample time and freedom to use our beautiful, outdoor learning spaces to run hard, move freely, and just play. Finally, in keeping with our vision, we dedicate time in the weekly schedule to empower students to “reach beyond themselves to make a difference in the world” through authentic and meaningful service, community building, leadership, and civic engagement opportunities.
