This concept is designed to foster physical, social, emotional and academic growth. Beginning with onsite preschool facilities, this school prepares students for sixth grade and beyond.
During their time in the “nest,” students have countless opportunities to collaborate, be creative and experience activity-based learning. Each grade level has a common space, or nest, dedicated to practicing social and leadership skills, as well as spaces intended for hands-on learning and technology integration. This site also offers community resources, including meeting facilities, a Family-Community Resource Center and courses for parents and families.
The school’s exterior provides many learning opportunities, too. Beyond the improved arrival and departure area, students enjoy inviting play spaces with trails, climbing areas and opportunities for imaginative play. A learning garden facilitates outdoor instruction and fosters community relationships.
