WE BELIEVE IN A LEARNING JOURNEY WHERE EVERY CHALLENGE IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GROW.
We embrace the development of each individual at all points along the way and share our continuing journeys with our learning community.
WE KNOW THAT SMALL PEOPLE HAVE BIG IDEAS.
Children are expert at curiosity and experimentation. They are innovators and we encourage them to use these unique skills to explore their world.
WE ARE ALL TEACHERS AND LEARNERS.
Project-based education leads all learners to become experts in their fields. As each individual shares their expertise and makes connections between disparate topics, a relationship forms that enriches the entire community.
WE EMBRACE THE UNIQUE BEAUTY IN EVERY VOICE AND VALUE EVERY LANGUAGE OF EXPRESSION.
By listening to the perspectives of our diverse community of learners, empathy grows. We are constantly listening and developing our ability to discover connections across ideas and between people.
WE KNOW THE VALUE OF DREAMING BIG DREAMS.
We value bold commitments and reflecting on progress. We believe in this intentional practice for ourselves and build these skills beginning with the very . youngest children of Slate School.
WE ARE COMMITTED TO CHANGING THE LANDSCAPE OF EDUCATION.
Through collaboration with universities, in workshops, and with teachers, Slate School hopes to inspire more schools with a similar mission for empowering learners, and restoring the art and joy of teaching to a new generation of educators.
WE BELIEVE THAT QUALITY EDUCATION SHOULD BE AFFORDABLE FOR EVERYONE.
WE ARE ALL STEWARDS OF THE ENVIRONMENT.
Our campus design maintains healthy habitats for native plants, insects, and animals. Our community reflects the spirit of this remarkable natural classroom.
