Structure

15:1 Student Teacher Ratio

Advisories and classes keep to this ratio in general. We often combine the classes to offer students a larger group setting or ensemble experience.

School Day 8:30 am-3:30 pm

Each day begins with an opening circle and concludes with a closing circle. Students have snack at 10:15 am, recess and PE at the Park starting at 11:30 am, and lunch at 12:45 pm. Students bring their own lunch. Lunches are required to be vegetarian and nut-free; however, fish is permissible.

Single & Mixed Grade Levels

Students work in mixed-age groups for academics, which builds community and challenges their intellect. When appropriate, they are grouped by grade.

Exceptional, Collaborative Teaching

Middle school faculty have specialties in math/science, humanities, and the arts. They collaborate daily on planning and continually hone their skills by participating in ongoing professional development.
