We are so thrilled you have found the Center School – a warm and engaging place where children are taken seriously.
Most days, a glimpse into Center School would reveal:
- At least one child marching into school, dwarfed by an enormous project she is proudly maneuvering to her classroom.
- Handfuls of students purposefully roaming the halls with clipboards in hand, recording observations of their environment or surveying their learning community.
- Lively debates on real issues resounding from the lunch tables.
- Teachers spilling over into each other’s classrooms to share ideas, make supportive comments, or invite another class to come visit.
You will see that the Center School community fosters a balance of social consciousness and self-awareness in an environment where children are encouraged to be independent and resourceful.
Rigorous academic projects, deep critical thinking, rugged outdoor pursuits, a commitment to creativity and curiosity, and an expectation of openness to new ideas are the mainstays of a Center School education.
The Center School encourages us all to investigate and embrace how we learn best as individuals, and how we might collectively contribute to making our world a better place.
We invite you to take a closer look!
Please contact us to schedule a visit.
Very truly yours,
Isabel “Charlie” Spencer
Head of School
