Boulder Community School/Integrated Studies 5

I've had 3 very different kinds of kids go through this school, and BCSIS has served all of them well. The combination of teaching philosophies allows many types of learners to thrive. If something doesn't stick one way, at least there are a couple other options. Such a rarity in education these days! Also, the teachers (as best they can) take into consideration the interests of the kids. No, the kids are NOT driving the curriculum. Nor are they empty vessels in which to impart knowledge. But it is more of partnership where the students opinions count and are truly part of the process. If you want to spend another couple weeks on Shakespeare, well, ok. Let's squish around the curriculum to accommodate passionate learners. This makes some parents, admittedly, uneasy. But it works for the kids. :-) Artsy kids, literary kids, mathy kids . . . If you want top-down management, lots of other options. If you want a school that respects & honors your whole child, choose BCSIS.

BCSIS has a very unique curiculum which integrates some of the most respected and intelligent views on how to teach the whole child. The teachers could not hold & deliver this package in a more committed and passionate way. I believe my kids are receiving the best because the staff believe whole-heartedly in what they are doing, like each other and have a support system for the challenges teaching brings.
