Respects the pace of childhood and understands that true exploration takes time
Creates a safe environment that allows children to be curious, take risks, and make mistakes
Encourages children to be independent thinkers and doers
Advocates learning through cooperation and collaboration
Designs and uses Central Subject, an interdisciplinary curriculum with a deep focus on a single theme or year-long topic
Emphasizes contact with primary sources and actual materials
Values creative thinking and intellectual discipline
Helps children discover the power of imagination
Promotes the leadership of teachers and invests in their professional development
Offers a stimulating teacher training course for those preparing to enter the profession
Challenges prejudice, respects difference, and recognizes that multiple perspectives inform human experience
Forges a lively, interdependent community of students, teachers, parents, alumni and administrators who work together to achieve the school's mission and sustain its values.
