Direct beneficiaries per year: 140 students
Geographic areas served: the San Francisco Bay Area
Programs: an integrated and comprehensive curriculum in all core subjects. Our curriculum meets each stage of the child’s development and fosters healthy inquiry and a deep respect for nature. Instruction in different modalities develops the capacities of students across the subject areas. Early exposure to quality literature and experiential math instruction provide students with the platform from which they will flourish. Encouraging students to view the wonder of the natural world as well as look into history for lessons and inspiration rounds off their core subjects to provide each child with an intellectual capacity to explore their interests and find their life long passion.
This is an incredible organization that works at building not only a school but a community. It teaches it childrens to be responsible human beings that are not only concerned about their grades, but also about taking care of the earth and the outside community.
