The student body is small, inclusive and diverse. My child has told me it feels like a family. The school is divided into elementary and secondary schools, but the classes are multi-age and multi-level. The children's unique talents are celebrated and nurtured. A child who is gifted musically, for instance, will be given responsibilities and opportunities to share this gift with the others. For instance, I know of one child who provided all the music for student assemblies. My son, who loves computers, was given the responsibility of maintaining all the school's computers. He is the defacto IT help desk for both the students and teachers. As he is graduating this year, he is mentoring a like-minded student to assume these responsibilities after he graduates. Many of the children have exceptionalities, often more than one (e.g., dyslexia or giftedness). The students and teachers support each other. It's a nurturing environment.
