Do you…?

Love working in a student-centered, democratic school community? We involve students in making decisions about curriculum and school rules, and students have significant freedom to choose learning activities throughout the day.  

Have experience supporting students in democratic resolution of conflicts? We communicate respectfully and non-coercively with students about school rules and learning goals, and use a model similar to restorative justice when conflicts arise.

Want to move away from rote learning and standardized testing? We believe in connecting concepts to authentic project-based, inquiry-based, and thematic learning experiences.

Feel passionate about supporting students with diverse skills and learning needs in actively directing their learning based on intrinsic motivation and interests? Our student-centered, student-driven pedagogical approach keeps students engaged and instills a love of lifelong learning.

Have a strong ability to be flexible, adaptable, and collaborate in a dynamic environment?

Have a strong commitment to social justice, anti-oppression, our mission and vision?
