Full School Experience in Santa Fe

Created in a home environment, the small, dedicated learning community operates on the assumption that every child is unique and has a mind and personality of particular beauty and idiosyncrasy; that human intelligence is a multifaceted thing in which academics are but one important component; that human beings are more likely to succeed in an environment where they feel known and cared about; that exercise in short-term memory alone does not constitute learning; that moment-to-moment social/emotional guidance is important; that the astonishing potential of the developing human mind often moves at its own pace and design; and that learning is a joyful life-long journey, not a destination.
