The school is situated on one campus. Children’s School teachers (PreK-5) work in self-contained classrooms of approximately 16 students each and are responsible for creating a community of learners in which children develop the skills of self-advocacy and resilience while demonstrating empathy and compassion for others. Classroom teachers plan, implement, and assess outdoor education experiences, language arts, math, science and social studies curricula and work in collaboration with specialists in physical education, drama, Spanish, music, and art. They utilize technology to develop integrated units of inquiry. Classroom teachers also serve as important resources for parents, helping them understand the school’s educational philosophy and children’s developmental needs.
