Our school day design has your child and family in mind. We believe that time is a gift, and when we give students and teachers the gift of time, learning and community truly become the centerpiece of a great school.
Our school day rhythm and our yearly calendar prioritizes:
- Family flexibility in daily and year-long scheduling
- Large chunks of time for learning and creating – both indoors and outdoors
- Time and freedom (no homework) to participate in other social activities
- Quality feedback from the teacher through detailed observations and helpful reports. No grades or report cards.
Students can arrive as early as 8:30am with the official morning meeting at 9:30. Our closing meeting will end at 3:15 pm and students will have additional flex time in the afternoon. We ask for all students to be picked up by 4:30 pm each day. On Fridays our closing meeting will end at 2:00 pm with afternoon flex time until 3:30 pm. The earlier end on Fridays gives space for family flexibility and time for teacher reflection and preparation.
We will tailor education to your child and so if school days are missed, there is no absent work required out of school. You get to decide when, and how many days of school, your family attends.
Please note, tuition is not adjusted for days your child does not come to school.
