Classes

Our curriculum supports a multicultural approach that includes racial, ethnic and religious diversity. Many belief systems are studied with utmost respect for all. We try to emphasize and support the local farming culture, local history, and the stories of the indigenous people of the region.

In addition to the comprehensive academic curriculum, all children receive training in vocal and instrumental music, Spanish, nature studies, painting and drawing, woodworking (upper grades), handcrafts (e.g. knitting, crocheting, embroidering, sewing), games and movement education.

We currently have grades 1-8. We look forward to offering kindergarten in the future.
