Beautiful environment, challenging curriculum, social skills taught at every turn. I see happy students here, eager to learn and engage, all the way through high school!

Amount of homework: Just right

In early grades there is almost no homework, moving up in the grades they start to get some and by 8th grade it's even more.limited homework allows the children to explore interests outside of school work. If my fourth grader comes home and wants to bake, she's learning all about measurements and fractions, with out all the angst homework brings.

in first grade the kids are taught to knit, the first big project is a scarf. It takes them months to make, this takes a lot of persistence and determination.

Develops empathy: Agree

It's one thing to force an apology, but to teach the child to make amends is another thing altogether. The children are loved and cared for by their teachers and it shows with how the students treat each other.

Children are taught to take responsibility for their actions, and genuinely apologize. Also taking turns and playing fairly are a major part of kindergarten.

There is a real effort to engage students in strong academic work, as well as social and emotional learning and practical work!

The children are taught to self-investigate their feelings and emotions in order to advance critical thinking skills

no, there are so many problem children bouncing in and out throughout the grades that there is no way the teachers can develop these characteristics.

The faculty and administration is not honest or fair, so how can they teach the children to be honest and fair?

No, children who are advanced and might be able to have the persistence and determination are constantly being taught to at a lower level.
