The Forest School
The Forest School is a small, alternate elementary school that is
operated under the principles of
humanistic education. Students are given a great deal of freedom,
both in terms of their courses,
and in terms of their daily living.
In addition to typical academic courses, the curriculum emphasizes
non-academic learning and
regular out-of-class excursions.
Forest School teachers, who live at the school with the stuents, are
dedicated to their own personal
and professional learning and participate in an ongoing self-study
program, fusing educational
theory with practice.
