We believe that students should be empowered to direct their own learning by making choices about what they want to learn and how they can learn it best.

Our democratic free school will give students a voice in their learning.  We believe that students who chart their own course in school are able to discover and follow their passions, develop intrinsic motivation, and engage deeply in authentic learning.

Our school will be a caring and inclusive community.  We empower students to learn to resolve their own conflict in a safe environment.  We welcome all students regardless of race, ethnic or national origin, family income, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or physical disability.
