The pillars of our approach include: 1. Developmentally-responsive Montessori learning, starting early with Pre-K; 2. Inspiring purpose in learning through a broad liberal arts curriculum and the Core Knowledge sequence; 3. The best practices of excellent urban schools; 4. Encouraging the development of moral and intellectual virtue; 5. Building an “attachment village” of supports between school, families, and the community. We hope to create a teaching environment that is about excellence and the craftsmanship of teaching, and is also family-friendly and sustainable. We open in summer 2015 with PreK through 1st grade, and are approved to add PreK-3 and up to 6th grade in the coming years.
