Having 3 Dragons, I hear a lot about their day by virtue of listening in. The students at Dragon are really diverse in interests and backgrounds but they all seem to bond over being in an environment where learning from each other is highly valued. One of my kids says, "it's too small not to get along with everyone". The students spearhead lunches together and things like "chris cringle". All the kids know each others names. Grades mean nothing. The co chairs of the student counsel consist of a student in grade 7 and a student in grade 12.

The Dragon has a huge emphasis on community. Students are engaged in an incredible range of activities, despite the small size of the school. The students become very close, and identify as "Dragons". It is amazing to see the graduating students talk about how tight the bonds among students are. The Dragon is designed for 'gifted non-conformists'. This informs all of the activity at Dragon, both inside the classroom and beyond. Kids are allowed to experiment and to fail. They are taught to harness their boundless enthusiasm and passion in constructive ways, whether is it in the formation of a club, or in the design of an experiment. They are also taught to respect each other's differences, and to celebrate what each person brings to the formation of a unique community.
