My oldest is finishing 8th and has attended since kinder. I love the culture. The children's needs are put first. They allow them to excel at their own pace. They use high-quality teaching practices. The kinder amazing. The middle school is an outstanding program based on Maria Montessori's guidelines. They teach the whole child; instructing them with above grade level content, college-level discussions, and focus on teaching the children how to self-assess, metacognate, and the morals and virtues needed to rise and be successful citizens after they leave. They are study the heroic journey, and have integrated this theme across the curriculum. This will culminate with them accomplishing their year-long individual goal and then going on on a week-long high adventure trip. My student has thrived in this program. This program should be at every MS to guide and lift every teen into good mental health habits. After 8.5 years, I'm still so impressed. Please take a tour and see for yourself.

The school nurse was helpful, as were teachers and other students when it was necessary. I at least felt that there was a contingency for everything that might happen, but not that we expected much trouble. We are a relatively small school sort of out in the desert. We all revived very good instruction on what we should do if we encounter any dangerous wildlife, such as a snake, scorpion, or spider, because these were fairly common where the school is located, and taught from the very beginning of kindergarten what we should and shops not do if we encounter one of these creatures, and that we were never to put our hands anywhere we could not see. The students were very good about holding each other to these rules, and recieved reminders of them every once in a while.
The teachers are very helpful and really care about, and go the extra mile for their students. The curriculum involves everything from math and sciences to things like personal reflection, at least in the middle school, and it is not structured like a traditional classroom. The teachers will give lessons, and offer halo when it is needed, but the students are also expected to seek help from and help one another, and they are all given lists of assignments they need to complete for that week and expected to finish them either in the work time provided in class, or at home. The workload is not too heavy, particularly with homework. If a student keeps on top of things, they may end up with no homework at all, at least for a time.
