The Center School is a loving community that celebrates each child’s unique personality, intelligence, and passion. Our school is a responsive learning environment, offering rigor and play in balanced abundance. Students emerge from our program with the skills and self-possession to be reflective, empathetic, and engaged citizens of our world.
The Center School:
Embraces the natural diversity of learning styles and integrates academic, social, emotional, physical, and artistic learning.
Collaborates with students to co-construct knowledge through exciting and open-ended processes.
Encourages children and adults to form a vision of social justice – of equitable, compassionate communities – through active participation in their classroom, their school, and beyond.
Invites students to approach every project and subject area with curiosity, critical thinking and a spirit of inquiry.
From our admissions director: Center School students learn to self-reflect, analyze and extend themselves to their peers and the greater community. We accept students ready to work hard as individuals, able to learn how to be considerate community members and motivated to make the world a better place.
We're small, but we are mighty - and it takes all of us! Every year, friends, parents, teachers, staff and students pitch in by teaching in the classroom or on a farm, volunteering for the Parents Committee, organizing a talent show or all school meeting, shuttling to field trips, giving to the annual fund, and more. We inspire each other!
