The Whole School

Detailed Information

Founded in May 1973, The Whole School is a community supported, non-profit, independent, elementary school providing a rich learning environment for students. The Whole School fosters the social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth of every child through a program focused on outdoor learning, multi-age, small class sizes, independent education planning, and student driven learning. The full potential of each student is nurtured in a safe, non-competitive, inspiring environment. Emphasis is placed on artistic expression, environmental stewardship, experiential learning, and social justice. Parents collaborate with teachers and are active volunteers.
