An Uncommon Education


To create a community rooted in justice and equity where all children thrive.

Values Guiding Our Work with Children

We honor and nurture the whole unique child. We believe and cherish that:

  • Children grow from the richness of diversity in community--racial, ethnic, social, religious, gender, and learning style.
  • Children are inherently curious and imaginative.
  • Children are naturally eager to understand their world and communicate their ideas.

We honor and nurture each child’s:

  • Capacity for kindness, empathy, generosity, and truthfulness.
  • Ability to explore, understand, and change the world through learned skills in math, language arts, scientific method, critical thinking, and problem-solving.
  • Right to learn through play, art, music, dance, and drama.
  • Need for outdoor learning--including games, imaginative play, and exploration of the natural world.

Supporting Values for the School

  • Research guides our decision-making.
  • Great teachers are at the heart of the learning process, and we provide them with opportunities to collaborate, network, and grow professionally.
  • We innovate and embrace solutions toward racial, economic, and language equity.
  • We build our community through partnerships.
  • We ensure sustainable finances and seek resources to support outrageously ambitious projects.
  • We believe in and contribute to high-quality public education, critical to a great democracy.

Our All Children Thriving Goals include:

    1. Accelerate Social Justice

    2. Advance Equity in Instruction and Learning

    3. Shift and Share Power with all our People

    4. Promote Healthy Integration for Diversity, Inclusion and Equity
