So worried, LOVE how the school sounds and offers we really hope to get in, but have to figure out something before this year ends...email at wtpooh831 at America On Line thx!
This school loves children. Teaches from the heart how to care for oneself genuinely and one another, reaching for joy, births curiosity about everything and quests and respects the truth.
The Free School offered my daughter the opportunities to learn real leadership skills, self-responsibility, and discernment. As a teenager she is self-assured and self-motivated to pursue a rigorous academic program. The Free School continues to be a great community with a long tradition of ongoing care, support, and life long friendships.
My daughter went to the Free School for eight years...it is still our spiritual home...best school ever!
The Free School gave my kids solid ground to live in the world and enjoy and relate to all kinds of people, all ages, sizes, colors and classes. Both my children are engaged adults who love to learn all the time, and love to have fun with others.
It gives kids the tools to think critically and solve problems. They are able to ask for help but figure things out for themselves, rather than just learning to do what they're told.
Both of my kids, ages 7 and 3, attend the Free School and I love it just as much as they do. The Free School fosters the spirit of childhood while also instilling the basis for a lifetime of inquisitiveness and learning. Free School kids learn to navigate the world and get the most out of life.
encourages the kids to be strong independent thinkers and it honors, never suppresses, their feelings. Their methods produce children who know how to direct and take charge of their own lives. At the same time, the kids learn how to acknowledge, communicate and deal with, their own emotions as well as those of the people they interact with.
it is an amazing place, where children learn the responsibilities of freedom, where they can play and be kids and where children take charge of their lives
All four of my children have learned to LOVE LIFE at the Albany Free School. The school incorporates all of our families into the community. We ARE the proverbial Village raising the children. We ARE the Albany Free School!
Never have I seen more children with an interest and zest for learning in one place at the same time. Picking up the grandkids is fun at the Free School!
Our three children attended the Free School. What they received, besides a great education, was an emphasis on interpersonal relationships that has helped them throughout their lives.
A truly brilliant school, with one of the greatest philosophies around...that being every person is equal and should be treated as such....freedom and love is at the school's core, which is why this could be one of the greatest schools ever..... www.albanyfreeschool.com
